PhD Student, Computer Science, Stanford University
I'm a second-year PhD student in Computer Science at Stanford, advised by Noah Goodman and part of the Stanford NLP Group. My research area is machine learning, especially applied to natural language processing. Recently, I've been interested in curiosity-based unsupervised learning and abstraction in deep models.
In the past, I've also worked on projects in reinforcement learning, HCI, and computational astronomy. I've also spent time at Google Research (Google Brain and Language teams) as well as Google Civics.
Other topics I think a lot about:
- Fostering a healthy and inclusive research culture
- AI policy, safety, and equity
- Connecting people and ideas from different fields
Outside of research, I organize the Stanford Queer in AI Dinner with Stanford Inclusion in AI
