I am currently looking for jobs

I am currently a senior data scientist at Traveloka Technology Pte Ltd (Traveloka), working on chatbot project, mainly to help reduce the burden of customer service agents by automating some routine cases.

Prior to that, I finished my master’s study at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), working on low-resource event-type detection under the supervision of Teruko Mitamura and Eduard Hovy

My interest is mainly on understanding why things happen, and as of now it is on problems related to language technology.

I have previously worked on entity recognition using hypergraph-based models, under the supervision of Lu Wei.

Being trained as a mathematician, I am particularly proud of my work on proving the linear-time complexity of a model my colleague proposed for entity recognition (see Efficient Dependency-guided Named Entity Recognition).

I also enjoy teaching, and is currently preparing for PhD to better qualify myself for teaching positions, although I am interested in research industry positions as well (see my CV for my work experience)
