I'm a PhD student at the University of Washington, advised by
Noah Smith and
I am interested in natural language processing (NLP) for social understanding.
Specifically, how can NLP help us understand human behavior, and how can we 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 artifical intelligence systems, and at Microsoft Research working on 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.
