What are the specifics of your graduate education (thus far)?
This is my first year of study at Northeastern. This fall I will begin to complete the required courses and start research with Professor Smith.
What are your research interests?
In college I earned double degrees in computer science and classics with a focus in ancient languages. Since I am just starting the PhD program, I am not sure what research path I will end up following, but hopefully it will be one that combines my interests in computer science, linguistics, and ancient languages.
