I am a post-doc at Stanford University, working with Percy Liang. Starting Fall 2019, I will be joining NYU as an assistant professor. Prior to Stanford, I got my Ph.D. in Computer Science from University of Maryland, College Park, advised by Hal Daumé III and Jordan Boyd-Graber. I am broadly interested in machine learning and natural language processing.
I want to enable machines to communicate with people in a natural, efficient way. My research focuses on building intelligent agents that work in a changing environment and interact with people. I have developed algorithms that acquire information dynamically and make predictions incrementally, with an emphasis on language-related problems. More recently, I have been interested in agents that collaborate or compete with people.
