About Me

I am a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Center for Language and Speech Processing @ Johns Hopkins University, working with Dr. Mark Dredze. My research interests lie in Trustworthy AI, Natural Language Processing (NLP), and Interpretable Machine Learning. I aim to develop explainable AI techniques that are easily accessible to system developers and end users for building trustworthy and reliable intelligent systems. My current research is centered around trustworthy NLP, with a focus on interpretability, robustness, and fairness, to support the understanding and interplay between humans and neural language models. I obtained my Ph.D. in Computer Science at the University of Virginia, under the supervision of Dr. Yangfeng Ji.

⭐ I will join the Department of Computer Science @ Rice University as a tenure-track Assistant Professor starting Summer 2024. I'm actively looking for motivated students to join my group!
