I am a postdoctoral researcher at University of Maryland, College Park, advised by Prof. Hal Daumé III. I received my Ph.D. from the Department of Computer Science, UCLA where I was advised by Prof. Kai-Wei Chang.

My research focuses on problems in Natural Language Processing and machine learning. Currently, I am working on detecting societal bias in modern machine learning or NLP systems. My research is supported by the Computing Innovation Fellowship. My resume is available here.
