I'm Xanda Schofield, and I am a PhD student in Computer Science at Cornell University. My office is at 237 Gates Hall.

My primary research is currently in topic modeling with my advisor, David Mimno. My work focuses on understanding and improving latent variable models for analysis of real-world datasets by humanist and social science researchers. Recently, I have also been working on integrating privacy into machine-learning-aided data mining in NLP. In the past, I've done research on state inference for oil drills and in improvisational music software. I also really enjoy baking cookies, encouraging women in STEM, and Shakespeare.
