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 thinking about curiosity, abstraction, and transfer in unsupervised learning.
In the past, I've worked on projects in reinforcement learning, HCI, and computational astronomy. I've also spent time at Google Brain, Google Language, and Google Civics.
I'm grateful to be supported by an Open Philanthropy AI Fellowship.
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
