I am a Ph.D. student at Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering, University of Washington, advised by Professor 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 fields of study are natural language processing (NLP) and artificial intelligence (AI), with broad interests in machine ethics, commonsense reasoning, applications for social good.
I aspire to explore computational approaches and models building on knowledge in language and multimodal forms for trustworthy, meaningful, and prosocial applications. Previously, I worked on human-computer interaction (HCI), so I’m also passionate about bringing human factors and interdisciplinary angles into play for my research.
My long-term research goal is threefold: computationally investigating meaningful & interesting phenomena in the world, building models that bridge language and multimodal information, human cognitions & behaviors and world knowledge through an interdisciplinary lense, and advancing AI applications to boost positive social impact.
I’m forever thankful to people who have mentored me in the past and at present. Thus, for undergrads interested in my work and who want to take a stab at research, feel free to reach out to me.
