About Me

I'm a fourth-year computer science undergraduate at The University of Texas at Austin, where I work with Greg Durrett and Jessy Li. Previously, I was a software engineering intern at Facebook, Uber, and Microsoft. My research primarily focuses on natural language processing, computational social science, and machine learning.
