I am a Ph.D. student at the University of California, Irvine, studying machine learning and natural language processing under Padhraic Smyth and Sameer Singh. My research primarily focuses on the interplay between language modeling and information extraction. In particular, I am interested in using structured knowledge to improve the quality of natural language generation systems and language representation models. Before coming to Irvine, I recieved BAs in Mathematics and Economics from the University of California, Santa Cruz. I have also conducted machine learning research as an intern at Diffbot and worked as a research analyst at Prologis.
