I am a Ph.D. student in Computer Science at the University of Maryland. My research focuses on machine learning and natural language processing. I am advised by Jordan Boyd-Graber and work in CLIP lab. I also work with Benjamin Van Durme from Johns Hopkins and Hsuan-Tien Lin from NTU.

I am interested in transfer learning for NLP. How can we adapt our current language model for new domains, languages, and tasks? What kind of information do we need to efficiently finetune our machine learning models? How do we design algorithms to incorporate human feedback?

Outside of computer science research, I am an avid mountain climber. I grew up climbing mountains with my mom and will continue to pursue this passion.
