I am a PhD student in the NLP Group at Stanford University stanford, where I am fortunate to be advised by Prof. Diyi Yang.

My work spans empirical Natural Language Processing and Computational Social Science, and I’m particularly excited about three research thrusts: (1) dialect robust NLP [Multi-VALUE (ACL 2023a); TADA (ACL 2023b)], (2) social NLP [NormBank (ACL 2023c); MIC (ACL 2022b); Positive Reframing (ACL 2022c)], and (3) safety in online communities [Racism is a Virus (ASONAM 2021); Latent Hate (EMNLP 2021)].

Previously, I finished my M.S. in Computer Science from Georgia Tech gt and my B.S. with a double major in Computer Science and Mathematics from Emory University emory. I was fortunate to spend some of my summers interning at Meta AI Applied Research meta and USC ISI usc.

As of 2021, I am supported by the NSF GRFP.

I’d love to hear from you! Please reach out :handshake:
