I am studying Natural Language Processing, particularly the intersection of NLP and education. My research topic focuses on generating constructive feedback comments on English learners' writing. Other subfields of interest include automated essay evaluation, personalized tutoring systems, and writing assistance tools for grammatical error correction or specific styles (e.g. academic English).
