/ / /

i'm a fourth-year undergraduate student (BS computer science, BS applied math) at usc viterbi.

broadly, i am motivated to create interactive natural language systems for the common good. my current research interests are in learning language from interaction and embodiment for reliable human-agent collaboration. i am fortunate to be advised by maja matarić, jesse thomason, and stefanos nikolaidis. previously, i have had the pleasure to work with jean oh at the cmu robotics institute, mary knapp at the mit haystack observatory, and shaoxu song at tsinghua university.

my work is generously supported by the goldwater scholarship and fellowships from usc, mit, cmu, and tsinghua university.

i am grateful for my peers, collaborators, and community who have enhanced my research journey, including leena mathur, lauren klein, tejas srinivasan, matthew fontaine, serena booth, beverley-claire okogwu, peter schaldenbrand, eliot xing, members and alumni from cais++, and our advisor bistra dilkina.
