LASAD logo Automated Essay Grading
Along with Anmol Gupta, Annie Hwang, and Paul Lisker, I used data from an existing Kaggle competition sponsored by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation to explore efficient, automated solutions for essay grading. For more info, check out our web report.

LASAD logo LASAD
I worked for over a year to update and improve this web-based application with Dr. Bruce McLaren of the Human-Computer Interaction Institute at Carnegie Mellon University. LASAD is designed to aid students in the production of collaborative argument diagrams, ultimately improving the strength of their arguments through peer feedback.

Bayes Matic 5100 logo Bayes Matic 5100
As an introduction to machine learning, I collaborated with fellow Harvard Class of 2018 members Anna Alsop, Gabe Grand, and Jennifer Hu to create a classifier that takes a Naive Bayes approach to ranking movie reviews as positive or negative. We completed this as a final project for Computer Science 51: Introduction to Computer Science II, which I took during my freshman spring at Harvard.

Language, Simplified logo Language, Simplified
Given our love for natural languages, Jennifer Hu and I explored how to optimize natural language for human and computer processing as our final project for Computer Science 50: Introduction to Computer Science I at Harvard. Noticing that the English language has many peculiarities that make spell-check and grammar-check algorithms difficult to implement, we designed an artificial human language, built for easy and efficient human and computer processing.
