Hi, I'm Dianna and I'm a PhD Student in the Information Science Department at the University of Colorado Boulder, fortunate enough to be advised by Dr. Michael Paul. I'm interested in how language can be used to make better sense and better representations of the world around us. I did my Bachelor's at the University of Texas at Austin, and my Master's at the University at Buffalo.
