I am a Research Scientist at Facebook Reality Labs in Seattle. I completed my PhD in computer science at University of Maryland’s CLIP lab in 2021, advised by Jordan Boyd-Graber. My dissertation explored ways to improve the data collection and evaluation methodologies in question answering. I was previously a research intern at Google AI-Zurich, FB Reality Labs, and Microsoft Research. Before my PhD and after completing my CS degree at UC Berkeley, I was a data scientist at Zillow Group.
