Hi! I'm Sophie (she/her), a computer science student at UC Santa Barbara. Lately, I've been wfh-not-from-home out of Santa Barbara, CA.
Here's my resume.
Over the past year, I've worked with my team in the UCSB NLP Group on issues within the realm of computational social science. Our interests have gone from linguistic diversity, to dialect performance in NLG, to measuring compound societal biases. You can see a sample of our work from EMNLP 2020 here.
I also work to support womxn in STEM as the External VP of UCSB's Society of Women Engineers. I connect our members with opportunities in industry and am the lead coordinator for our Evening with Industry, an annual networking event that brings together 100+ students and company representatives.
Right now, I'm listening to by
In my free time, I dance (I was a ballet dancer for 10+ years!) and read memoirs, historical fiction, and crime novels (or more accurately, add those books to my bookshelf).
If you've read this far, reach out to say hello!
