About Me

I’m an incoming AI Resident at Facebook AI Research, where I’ll be working with with Marjan Ghazvininejad and Mike Lewis on natural language processing research. I recently graduated from the University of Washington with my undergraduate degree in computer science. There, I worked with Shwetak Patel and Noah Smith. My research interests lie broadly at the intersections of NLP and HCI, with a focus on applications in health. I have also researched ubiquitous computing sensing tools for healthcare and novel iteractions.

I’d never thought that I’d be working in the areas of natural language processing and machine learning, but with the support of fantastic mentors who supported my budding interests in interdisciplinary computing research, I’ve discovered new and exciting intersections to pursue. Thus, I’m happy to help ambitious undergraduates figure out how to get started in both interdisciplinary and empirical computing research, especially students with background in areas outside of machine learning and natural language processing (I started with HCI!). Feel free to email me and reach out.


[May 2021] Started my internship at Microsoft Research with the Project Hanover team, where I’m working with Tristan Naumann on research at the intersection of NLP and healthcare!
[April 2021] Excited to announce that I’ll be starting my PhD in the Khoury College of Computer Sciences at Northeastern University in autumn of 2022, where I’ll be advised by Byron Wallace on research at the intersection of machine learning, natural language processing, and healthcare. Thanks to everyone who has supported me on this journey thus far!
[March 2021] I was awarded an Honorable Mention for the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship competition.
[April 2020] Our paper was accepted into EMBC 2020!
