I am a final-year PhD candidate in Computer Science at Cornell University, based at Cornell Tech in New York, NY. My advisor is Yoav Artzi and my research area is natural language processing. In 2016, I graduated from Ohio State University with a BS in Computer Science and Engineering and a minor in Linguistics.
My research spans natural language processing, machine learning, and computer vision. I build systems that use language to interact with people, e.g., in collaborative interactions (like CerealBar). I design models and datasets that address and represent problems in language grounding (e.g., NLVR). I also develop learning algorithms for systems that learn language through interaction.
