I am a senior research scientist at Google, and I will be starting as an assistant professor at Carnegie Mellon University in 2023. I am interested in the properties of generative language models for text and the challenges of automatically generating narratives that are simultaneously coherent and interesting. I also look at ways to allow human writers to use generative text models as creative tools. I completed my PhD at University of Pennsylvania, co-advised by Professor Chris Callison-Burch at UPenn and Principal Scientist Douglas Eck at Google Brain.
In 2022, I was on the academic job market.
