I am a third year graduate student in the College of Information and Computer Sciences, UMass Amherst. I work with Prof. Hong Yu on safe and interpretable machine learning in healthcare. I’m also interested in general natural language processing applications and speech/conversational AI.
My current project with Prof. Yu is on reliable and interpretable prediction of critical patient events like mortality, re-admission, bleeding, and heart failure, using electronic health records. Our latest work in this project will be published in the Journal of Medical Internet Research (JMIR) in 2020.
I interned at Amazon Alexa AI in the summer of 2019, and will return for the summer of 2020. At Amazon, I worked on improving semantic parsing in Alexa’s NLU engine. Our work is set to be published at the Web Conference (WWW) 2020.
When I’m not working on research, I’m mostly playing on my PS4. I also enjoy running, climbing, and football.

Our work at Amazon was featured on VentureBeat 😄
I presented a poster about our semantic parsing work at Amazon Research Day in Boston in Nov 2019.
I was awarded the Sudha and Rajesh Jha scholarship for 2019 at UMass Amherst.
