Welcome!

Hi there! I'm Belén; I'm interested in a few different things (you'll find out as you see my projects). Currently, I'm a 1st year PhD student at MIT trying to focus my research on personal narrative understanding and natural language processing. Please drop me a line if you want to share something with me!
