I am a PhD student in the computer science department at the university of Maryland. I am a member of the computational linguistics and information processing (CLIP) lab. I am working with Prof. Jordan Boyd-Graber on interactive question answering. I spent summer 2019 doing an internship at Microsoft Research and summer 2017 at the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence (AI2). I received an IBM Ph.D. fellowship in 2017.

Previously, I worked on making machine learning algorithms more scalable. I did an internship at IBM Almaden lab in summer 2015 where, in collaboration with IBM researchers, we introduced compressed linear algebra for large-scale machine learning (VLDB 2016 Best Paper Award).
