I am a PhD student at Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering at University of Washington, advised by Prof. Yejin Choi.

I earned B.A. in Computer Science and B.A. in Mathematics from Colby College. During my undergraduate studies, I worked on Smart Primer at Stanford University HCI group.

My primary field of study is natural language processing (NLP), focusing on common sense reasoning. Previously, I worked on Human-computer Interaction (HCI) in the healthcare and education fields.
