Thanks for stopping by!

I am a first-year PhD student in Computer Science at Stanford University. I work on natural language processing and machine learning.

Prior to Stanford, I received a B.S. in Computer Science from Yale University. While at Yale, I had the privilege of working with Prof. Dragomir Radev (@ LILY lab) and Prof. John Lafferty.

My recent projects include text summarization (YZMPSR'17; YKZFL+'19), semantic parsing (YZYYW+'18; YZELX+'19), mathematical writing (YL'19), and interpretability of neural networks (YKR'18). I also co-organized a workshop on scientific document summarization at SIGIR 2018 and SIGIR 2019.
