Hi! I'm a second-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Computer Science at Stanford University advised by Percy Liang and Dan Jurafsky.
I helped build and currently organize the Stanford Center for Research on Foundation Models (CRFM). I am also affiliated with Stanford NLP and Stanford AI.
My graduate studies are currently funded by the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program (NSF GRFP). [Press Release]

I graduated with a bachelors (Mathematics, Computer Science; 2019) and masters (Computer Science; 2020) from Cornell University, where I was advised by the incomparable Claire Cardie.
I was very fortunate to learn from and collaborate with the late Professor Arzoo Katiyar, who I profoundly miss and am deeply grateful to.
During my four years at Cornell, Cornell CS was my home. The department wrote this nice piece about my time at Cornell. [Profile] [Profile 2]

My research focuses on understanding AI systems and their societal impact, as well as using NLP to further scientific inquiry.
Primary research interests: foundation models, measurement and evaluation, model analysis, data in ML, inequity and fairness, ethics
Secondary research interests: computational social science, psycholinguistics, algorithms and TCS

What have I been up to?
