I am a fourth-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Computer Science at UT Austin, advised by Greg Durrett. I am also a member of the TAUR lab (Text Analysis, Understanding, and Reasoning).

My research focuses on Natural Language Processing and the interpretability of NLP models in particular. Specifically, I am interested in 1) using explanations to improve model performance in downstream applications, and 2) building and evaluating explanations for models designed for complex NLP tasks. I also works on semantic parsing and program synthesis.

Prior to joining UT Austin, I obtained my Bachelor's degree from the School of Software, Tsinghua University, where I worked with Prof. Shixia Liu on Visual Analysis and Machine Learning.
