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 understanding language model’s capabilities and limitations in reasoning tasks and developing algorithms to address these limitations. More recently, I started caring about building Human-centered AI system that are more safe, reliable and efficient.

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