Pinned toot

Hey everyone. I am a PhD Student in Computational Linguistics. My main research interest is computational linguistics for under resourced languages. I am particularly interested in computational linguistics for Bantu languages because of the extremely complex morphology that they bring to the table.

I am also doing research in sentiment analysis on stance detection and irony/sarcasm detection. Most of my research is on machine learning approaches.

hello my name is Jessica and i need a job.

i have a PhD in Computer Science specializing in Machine Learning and Computer Vision, but at this point i would take nearly any programming work.

i have experience numerous languages, operating systems, frameworks, and toolkits.

i am also an autistic transgender lesbian so any work i take has to be accommodating.

i'm currently living in east coast USA but willing to relocate nearly anywhere.

another oldie but still good.
