I am an Applied Scientist at Amazon AWS AI. I obtained my Ph.D. degree in Computer Science at the University of Maryland under the guidance of Jordan Boyd-Graber. I have also closely worked with Benjamin Van Durme from Johns Hopkins and Hsuan-Tien Lin from NTU.

My research focuses on problems in natural language processing and machine learning. I am interested in the intersection of transfer learning and interactive learning. How can we adapt NLP models for new domains, languages, and tasks through human feedback? How do we design algorithms and interfaces to easily bring a human into the loop?

Outside of computer science research, I enjoy activities like mountain climbing, rock climbing, badminton, and running. I also really like playing the piano.

Fun fact: I have an Erdös number of 3.
