Hi! I’m a third-year PhD student in computer science at Stanford University. I conduct research in natural language processing and machine learning. I am grateful to be co-advised by Chris Manning and Percy Liang, and to be supported by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship.

I aim to design systems that robustly and efficiently learn to understand human languages to the end of advancing human communication and education, and to teach others.

Feel free to look me up on Google Scholar or Twitter, or take my CV.


Current Research Interests

  • Understanding unsupervised learning of language
  • NLP theory
  • Out-of-domain extrapolation in NLP
  • Multilinguality and low-resource language processing
