I am a fourth year PhD Student at the Center for Data Science at New York University where I am advised by Prof. He He. My research is broadly in the field of natural language processing and human-AI collaboration. I’m currently working on collaborative text generation for creative writing tasks and other interactive settings. I also help organize the NYU NLP and Text-as-Data talk series.

Prior to this, I completed my MS in Computer Science at NYU’s Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences during which I was a Graduate Research Associate at the Center for Social Media and Politics working on political stance classification and multimodel content sharing in online disinformation campaigns. I’ve also had the chance to intern with AWS, Amazon Alexa AI and LAER.AI while in grad school.

I did my undergrad at the National Institute of Technology - Karnataka where my thesis was advised by Prof. Sowmya Kamath.
