I'm a CS Ph.D. candidate at University of Southern California, co-advised by Prof. Nanyun Peng (Plus Lab) and Prof. Aram Galstyan at the Information Sciences Institute.

I am broadly interested in a variety of machine learning and NLP problems. My current work focuses on creating novel machine learning models for event-centric reasoning with applications in information extraction and question answering.

Prior to joining USC, I worked at Federal Reserve and Commonwealth Bank of Australia as a statistical researcher and a data scientist for more than three years.

While working full-time, I obtained my Masters' degree in data science at NYU CDS where I had the privilege to collaborate with brilliant researchers such as Kyunghyun Cho, Michael Gill and Arthur Spirling.

Outside of machine learning and NLP research, I enjoy playing all kinds of sports games.
