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 help organize the Stanford Center for Research on Foundation Models (CRFM). I am also affiliated with Stanford NLP and Stanford AI.
My graduate studies are funded by the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program (NSF GRFP). [Press Release]

I graduated with a B.A. (Mathematics, Computer Science; 2019) and M.S. (Computer Science; 2020) from Cornell University, where I was advised by the incomparable Claire Cardie.
I am honored to have the fortune of learning from and collaborating with the late Professor Arzoo Katiyar, who I profoundly miss.
During my time at Cornell, Cornell CS was my home. The department wrote this nice piece about my journey 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, data in ML, inequity and systemic harm, ethics
Secondary research interests: computational social science, language acquisition, algorithms and TCS

What have I been up to?
