Hello! I am a first year PhD student in computer science at UT Austin. I am fortunate to be advised by Eunsol Choi. My primary research interests include machine learning, natural language processing, and computational social science.

Prior to UT, I received my undergraduate degree in computer science at the University of Washington, where I worked with Noah A. Smith. I also spent some time at Microsoft Dynamics 365 AI Research (working with Yu Cheng) and at Unbabel (working with André F.T. Martins).
