I'm a PhD student at the University of Washington advised by
Noah Smith and
interested in natural language processing (NLP) for social understanding.
Specifically, I want to understand how NLP can help us understand human behavior, and how we can endow NLP systems with social intelligence, social commonsense, or theory of mind.
In the past, I've interned at AI2 on project Mosaic
working on social commonsense for artificial intelligence systems, and at Microsoft Research working on long-term memory and storytelling with Eric Horvitz.
We create a large-scale benchmark for social commonsense reasoning that is challenging for modern NLP models.
