Hi! I'm currently a second-year PhD student in Machine Learning at the University of Washington, co-advised by Professors Ludwig Schmidt and Sewoong Oh.
My research interests include reliable machine learning, neural network representations, and improving the quality of pretraining datasets.

I was an AI Resident at Google Brain from Oct 2019 to Sept 2021. Prior to that I completed my undergrad at Stanford, majoring in Computer Science, and had the chance to spend a wonderful summer at Two Sigma.

From June to December 2022, I was a student researcher at Google Brain, working with Simon Kornblith.
Starting from September 2023, I will be a visiting researcher at Meta AI Research, working with Luke Zettlemoyer and Ari Morcos.
