I am a PhD Candidate at the University of Toronto and the CEO of Surethink Inc.

My research is predominantly in the realm of quantitative psychology, where I have been continuously seeking the ground-truth of psychological constructs since 2013. In my early research, I tested the degree to which psychological models are obscured by self-report and statistical methods. This line of research naturally led to the development and validation of new methods of measuring psychological constructs. Today, I research how computational models based on machine learning can provide deeper insight into the human mind.

At Surethink, I develop computational solutions for broad problems in industry and academia. Right now, I am working on a machine-learning based software platform to provide deeper insight into the meaning of text. When it is active, you can find a demo of my platform on the Surethink website.
