About Me

My name is Kate, and I am a CS Ph.D. student at Johns Hopkins University. I am co-advised by Professor Benjamin Van Durme and Professor Alan Yuille of the JHU Center for Language and Speech Processing. My primary research interest lies in knowledge acquisition through natural language processing and computer vision, or how machines can learn about the world through written text and images.

I received a BA in Computer Science from UC Berkeley, where I conducted AI and robotics research at the UC Berkeley AUTOLab and was advised by Professor Ken Goldberg.
