I am interested in Natural Language Processing, Computer Vision, Machine Learning and Applied Mathematics.
My current research involves detecting visible human activities from
transcribed YouTube videos.
Before starting my PhD, I worked in the R&D industry on developing algorithms for self-driving cars. I'm looking to get involved in the ai4good movement, applying AI in problems that have potential to improve the world (climate change, social science, ethics).
I am a PhD Candidate at University of Michigan, member of the Language and Information Technologies lab,
co-advised by Rada Mihalcea and Jia Deng. I'm also a fan of hobbies and a healthy work-life balance.
