I'm a first-year PhD student at Northeastern University where I'm advised by Byron Wallace and work closely with David Bau. Though I'm still pinning down my exact research interests, broadly, I'm interested in the intersection of natural language processing and human-computer interaction, particularly in domains related to language modeling, intepretability, and the interaction between humans and AI tools. I'm honored to be supported by a (Northeastern) Khoury PhD Fellowship and an NSF GRFP.
Before my PhD, I spent a year as an AI Resident with Fundamental AI Research (FAIR) at Meta, working with Marjan Ghazvininejad and Mike Lewis and collaborating with Asli Celikyilmaz and Mona Diab on topics related to prompting and pretrained language modeling. I've also interned at Microsoft Research where I worked with Tristan Naumann on building biomedical NLP benchmarks.
In undergrad, I studied computer science at the University of Washington. There, I collaborated with both the DUB and UW NLP research groups, where I worked with Shwetak Patel on ubiquitous computing and Noah Smith on natural language processing, respectively.
Our paper, Summarizing, Simplifying, and Synthesizing Medical Evidence using GPT-3 (with Varying Success), was accepted to ACL!
I was awarded a 2022 NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. Northeastern wrote an article about it here.
Started as an AI Resident with Fundamental AI Research (FAIR) at Meta in Seattle, working on natural language processing and human-computer interaction research for a year.
Started my internship at Microsoft Research working with Tristan Naumann on the intersection of natural language processing and healthcare!
Excited to announce that I’ll be starting my PhD in the Khoury College of Computer Sciences at Northeastern University in Boston, fall of 2022. Thanks to everyone who has supported me on this journey thus far!
I was awarded an Honorable Mention for the 2021 NSF Graduate Research Fellowship competition.
