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 field of study is natural language processing (NLP), currently focusing on commonsense knowledge reasoning, connotative language understanding, and conversational applications for social good, such as education and healthcare.

My long-term research goal is threefold: computationally investigating meaningful & interesting phenomena in the world, innovatively bridging language, human cognitions & behaviors and world knowledge through an interdisciplinary lense, and applying AI advances to boost positive social impact.

I’m evermore thankful for the generosity of people who mentored me in the past and at present. Thus, I’ve reserved 1 hour per week to provide feedback on PhD applicantions in my relevant field from underrepresented communities. Feel free to contact me via email.
