Megan Barnes

Student, University of Chicago

I graduated from the University of Chicago, studying linguistics and computer science.  I am interested in language processing as well as data processing techniques, like machine learning, that help us better understand humans. At Knowledge Lab, I worked on a project to create maps of research activity in key topical areas of interest to research funding agencies. The maps could reveal and help funders analyze a) levels of research activity, b) who is participating, c) and in which topics.  Also, I love music, Twitter, comedy, and the Pacific Northwest. I am currently working for an early stage startup in New York City.
