About Me

I am a first-year PhD student at the Language Technologies Institute within Carnegie Mellon University’s School of Computer Science, advised by Mona Diab and Daniel Fried. Before joining LTI, I graduated with a B.S. in Math and Computer Science from Harvey Mudd College, where I worked with Calden Wloka and Heather Zinn Brooks. As an undergraduate student, I also interned at LTI with Graham Neubig and Yonatan Bisk.

I’m broadly interested in pragmatics and interaction in natural language systems, as well as controlling language models in multiagent environments. Some specific subquestions I’m currently interested in include:

  • How can we evaluate models’ social intelligence in more interactive scenarios?
  • How can we better control language agents’ behavior in multiagent systems?
  • In what ways are intervening on or interpreting model internals useful for understanding social behavior?
