Hi there! I’m a fourth-year PhD student at New York University’s Center for Data Science (CDS) where I am advised by Sam Bowman. My research is in on machine learning and natural language processing, with a focus on crowdsourcing methodologies for high quality NLU data. You can reach me at nikitanangia@nyu.edu.

In 2018, I got my Masters degree in Data Science at NYU. Prior to that, I did R&D for a few year at a start-up (which no longer exists) after graduating from the University of Chicago in 2013 with a Bachelor’s in Physics. While in the Physics world, I studied and researched in experimental high energy.


Here’s my Google scholar for an up-to-date list of publications.

NYU AI School

Aside from research, I’ve been one of the primary organizers of the NYU AI School since we started it in 2019. Our focus with this week-long program is to introduce college students from underrepresented groups to machine learning. We hope to demystify the field and make it approachable, encouraging more students to pursue work and studies in ML.
