Seattle, WA

I am a post-doctoral researcher at Allen Institute for AI and the Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Washington working with Yejin Choi. Prior to this, I did my Ph.D. (2022) in Computer Science at the University of California, Santa Cruz, working with Snigdha Chaturvedi. I hold a master degree (2018) in Computer Science and a master (2014) and bachelor (2012) degree in Electrical Engineering.

I am broadly interested in natural language understanding and generation with the long-term goal of instilling human-like communication, commonsense knowledge, and reasoning capabilities in machines. My current research interests include (controllable) text generation, (social) commonsense reasoning, and unsupervised learning.

Previously, I interned at Microsoft Research, working on controllable grounded text generation; and at AI2, working on unsupervised rationale generation for non-monotonic reasoning.
