Hello! I’m a first-year PhD student at New York University’s Center for Data Science (CDS) where I am advised by Sam Bowman. My research is broadly on machine learning and natural language processing. 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 has since crumbled) 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.
