I am a PhD student working on machine learning, natural language processing, second language writing, corpus linguistics, and English for academic purposes (EAP). My current research is looking at how to develop a writing assistant powered by machine learning and NLP models to improve the English academic writing of researchers with English as a second language.

Before joining the University of Surrey, I worked as Software Engineer developing web and mobile applications using various technologies (Python, NodeJS, PHP, Java, iOS, Android) and across different industries (E-commerce, Fitness, Mobility, Health, Social Networking).
