Angela Fan

Research Engineer

I am a PhD student at INRIA Nancy and Facebook AI Research Paris, advised by Antoine Bordes, Chloe Braud, and Claire Gardent. I am interested in text generation. Before starting my PhD, I was a research engineer at FAIR for two and a half years and got a Bachelor’s degree in statistics at Harvard.
