Lj Miranda | A collection of notes, projects, and essays.

Hi! I'm Lj Miranda, and welcome to my website!

I'm a predoctoral researcher at the AllenNLP team at AI2. Previously, I was a machine learning engineer at Explosion working on spaCy.

I'm broadly interested in building equitable language technologies in the presence of severe data and compute constraints. I'm happy to discuss research and collaborate, so feel free to reach out!
