Undergraduate Data Science Scholar
Chloe is a rising senior at Georgetown University. Originally from Houston, Texas, Chloe is studying linguistics with a minor in Chinese. For the summer of 2023, she joined the UMBC Data Science Scholars as an undergraduate researcher on the linguistics side with Dr. Christine Mallinson and PhD student Lavon Davis. She listens to recordings of both fake and authentic audio to identify linguistic cues that distinguish deepfakes from real speech.
She is now developing a training program based on those cues that were identified with the aim of teaching people what to listen for when they encounter potentially fake audio online. She assists with evaluating the efficacy of this training program and further refining it, literature reviews, and provides support to the rest of the team in writing about the project for publication in academic journals.
