I'm a senior undergraduate student (BS Computer Science, BS Applied Math) at USC Viterbi . I am very fortunate to work with Maja Matariฤ‡, Jesse Thomason, and Stefanos Nikolaidis.

Broadly, I am interested in analyzing and generating language in grounded social interactions. I am particularly excited about language grounding in vision (Interspeech 2023), social inference and reasoning (ACII 2022), and learning from synthetic data (AAAI 2024).

Previously, I have had the pleasure to spend my summers interning at the CMU Robotics Institute , MIT Haystack Observatory , and at Tsinghua University .

My work is generously supported by the Goldwater Scholarship.


I am extremely grateful for my peers, collaborators, and community who have helped me immensely, including Leena Mathur, Lauren Klein, Tejas Srinivasan, Serena Booth, Matthew Fontaine, Beverley-Claire Okogwu, Peter Schaldenbrand, Eliot Xing, members and alumni from CAIS++, and our advisor Bistra Dilkina.
