Hello! I am a third-year Ph.D. student in Computer Science at Cornell University advised by Prof. Alexander Rush. My research interests lie in the broad field of machine learning and natural language processing, particularly in building an efficient language understanding system.

Current research directions

Efficient and cooperative machine learning systems


🔥 Oct 2023: One paper got accepted to NeurIPS 2023 - Tanh Works Better with Asymmetry.

🔥 May 2023: I was selected as an ML and Systems Rising Star 2023.
