I’m currently a PhD student in computer science at Stanford University with Percy Liang. I’m passionate about the machine learning and optimization, and have some experience.

Research Interests

I am interested in studying how natural language processing can be tooled to make it easier for people to understand and consume information. On a related note, I care about how we can bring greater transparency, accountability and fairness in voice through information summarization. I believe that both these goals need us to rethink how we evaluate our models and my more recent work seeks to address this problem using a mix of statistics, crowdsourcing and natural language processing.

In the past, I have worked on providing guarantees for learning latent variable models, probabilistic programming, statistical relational learning and hierarchical reinforcement learning.
