Hello! I am a first-year PhD student in Computer Science at the University of Chicago. I am advised by Professor Chenhao Tan in the Chicago Human+AI Lab (CHAI) Lab. My research interests lie in the fields of natural language processing and computational social science.

Prior to Chicago, I majored in CS at Cornell, where I was fortunate to work with Professor Lillian Lee and Ana Smith in the NLP group.

My graduate studies are also supported by a GFSD fellowship.


  • [6/21] I interned on the PyTorch Model Optimization team at Facebook.
  • [6/21] I presented at SocialNLP@NAACL.
  • [3/21] I received an Honorable Mention for the NSF GRFP.

Thanks for visiting!
