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.
During the year, I'm also a part-time intern at AI2 on project Mosaic,
working on social commonsense for artifical intelligence systems.
This summer, I'm interning at Microsoft Research working with Eric Horvitz on long-term memory and storytelling.
Racial Bias in Toxic Language Detection
We quantify racial bias in hate speech datasets and algorithms, and
study how these biases arise in annotations.
