Anjali Das

Natural Language Processing Research Data Scientist

Anjali is a PhD student in Computer Science at Columbia University. She graduated from the University of Chicago in 2020, where she received a B.S. in Statistics and a minor in Computer Science. While there, she worked as a research assistant in the Department of Human Genetics, investigating the genetic basis of Alzheimer’s disease in the Hutterites, a founder population. Outside of school, she taught middle and high school girls elementary lessons in computer science and led a classical Indian dance organization.

Like many others, Anjali was raised on Roald Dahl; The BFG was a particular favorite, teaching her the need for compassion regardless of differences. Recognizing the influence media like books can have on children, she is very excited to explore and quantify this impact through text analysis at MiiE.
