I am a PhD student in Computer Science at the University of Washington, advised by Katharina Reinecke. My research focuses on making NLP (and AI) systems work for people around the world, especially the non-western populations. This includes uncovering design biases of NLP models & datasets and building models that can accommodate perspectives from different demographics. I am also broadly interested in problems that arise wherever NLP systems interact with humans, such as when crowd-sourcing data or building language user interfaces.
Previously, I have worked at Allen AI, Microsoft Research, Carnegie Mellon University and University College London. I have also spent two summers with Google Summer of Code working with Julia Language and Mozilla.
