Hi, I am a second-year M.S. candidate in Symbolic Systems at Stanford University, where I am fortunate to be advised by Michael C. Frank. I am actively applying for doctoral programs in natural language processing, computational psycholinguistics, and computational social science for Fall 2020. At Stanford, I work at:

I aim to make machines achieve learning and reasoning capabilities closer to human learners. Specifically, I want to make machines master human languages. Besides, my favorite quote is from Andrew Ng: Artificial Intelligence is the New Electricity. Therefore, I am also passionate about applying ML and NLP techniques for the social good. Overall, my research interests are (including but not limited to):

  • Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Decision Making Under Uncertainty
  • Natural Language Processing, Computational Linguistics
  • Computational Social Science, Computational Cognitive Science
  • Language Variation and Change, Language Acquisition, Pragmatic Reasoning
  • AI for Social Good (Education, Mental Health, Sustainable Development)

Prior to Stanford, I spent 4 years as an undergraduate in Computer Science and Linguistics at Emory University, where I worked with Jinho D. Choi in Emory NLP Lab on natural language processing and Roberto Franzosi in Emory Program for Computer-Assisted Coding of Events (PC-ACE) on computational social science.
