I am a final-year computer science Ph.D. candidate (on the job market now!) at University of Southern California. I work on natural language processing and applied machine learning, advised by Prof. Nanyun Peng (Plus Lab at UCLA) and Prof. Aram Galstyan at the Information Sciences Institute.

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

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 work with Prof. Kyunghyun Cho.

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