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

I am interested in the intersection of transfer learning and interactive learning. How can we adapt NLP models for new domains, languages, and tasks through human feedback? How do we design algorithms and interfaces to easily bring a human into the loop?

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. I also really enjoy playing the piano.

Fun fact: I have an Erdös number of 3.
