Hi! I’m a PhD student at NYU Center for Data Science in the Machine Learning for Language group, advised by Sam Bowman and Kyunghyun Cho. I’m broadly interested in deep learning for natural language understanding, code generation, model robustness, and improved evaluation metrics for NLU models. I also previously worked as a student researcher at Google Research on streaming models for disfluency detection. Starting in June 2022 I will be working as a student researcher at Google Brain on code generation.
Prior to NYU, I worked as a software engineer at Google and graduated with high honors from Princeton Computer Science. Sebastian Seung advised my senior thesis at Princeton, for which I received an Outstanding Computer Science Thesis award.
Outside of my research, I enjoy running, baking more pastries than I can feasibly eat, and cooking. I also volunteer as a rape and domestic violence crisis counselor/victim advocate for the NYC Crime Victims Treatment Center (at Lenox Health Greenwich Village and Brookdale Hospital) and a crisis counselor for Crisis Text Line.
