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

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 / data scientist while obtaining my Masters’ degree at NYU Center for Data Science (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.
