Hi! I'm an Assistant Professor of Data Science at the University of Virginia. I am spending the 2023-2024 academic year in Cambridge, MA where I am a Visiting Assistant Professor at MIT. Previously, I was a postdoc at MIT working with Marzyeh Ghassemi. Before that, I did my PhD in Data Science at WPI where I was advised by Elke Rundensteiner and Xiangnan Kong.
I am recruiting highly-motivated students and postdocs to start Fall 2024
I'm broadly interested in machine learning and natural language processing, especially to enable responsible deployment in ever-changing environments.
I'm mainly focusing on:
Test-time interventions for big, pre-trained models
Pre-training for time series, language, and multi-modal models
Detecting and mitigating harmful social biases in LLMs and natural language
Healthcare applications: NLP for scientific medical literature, learning from ICU time series, fair computational pathology, understanding mental health via wearable devices
Outside of research, I enjoy bouldering, biking, books (science fiction/science fact), birding, juggling, vegan cooking, and playing guitar. I also spent a summer living at BioSphere 2 in Arizona.
