About Me

I am a passionate AI researcher and entrepreneur, interested in finding solutions for real-world problems. Currently, I am a 4th year Ph.D. student at Carnegie Mellon University in the Language Technologies Institute and founder of Stella AI. Before founding Stella AI in 2021, I co-founded TalkMeUp and led the product and research development during my time as CTO. My experiences in academia and in the startup world enabled me to combine scientific methods with problem-oriented strategies to find solutions that bring value to society.

I am happily married and mother of a toddler. We enjoy exploring the world together, picking our fruits on farms, visiting museums, the zoo, and the swimming pool.
