Welcome! Everything is fine.

Julia Mendelsohn


Hi, I'm Julia! I'm a first-year PhD student at the University of Michigan School of Information, advised by David Jurgens and Ceren Budak. I completed my BA in Linguistics (2018) and MS in Computer Science (2019) at Stanford University, where I was advised by Dan Jurafsky. My research interests include natural language processing, sociolinguistics, and computational social science. Here is my academic CV.
