About Me

I'm an undergraduate at the University of Washington, where I'm studying computer science, statistics, and linguistics. I work on research as a member of Noah's ARK, and I am advised by Noah Smith. I'm interested in machine learning and natural language processing.

Outside of work I enjoy contributing to open source and just programming for fun. Beyond computer-related things, I like hiking, photography, and attempting to cook.



During summer 2017, I was a research intern in the USC/Information Sciences Institute natural language group. I worked with Kevin Knight and Jonathan May on low-resource neural machine translation and language-independent translation of out-of-vocabulary words.

During winter 2017, I was a research intern at the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence (AI2), where I worked with Matt Gardner on transfer learning for neural reading comprehension models.

During the summer of 2016, I participated in the Google Summer of Code, and I worked with the scikit-learn project.


I love working on open source, and my code is on Github.

I use GPG (mostly for signing commits), here are my keys

I make a blog post once in a blue moon, but I'm working on increasing the frequency.
