I am an assistant professor at CMU's LTI department, and a part-time research scientist at the Allen Institute for AI (AI2). My research focuses on endowing NLP systems with social intelligence and social commonsense, and understanding social inequality and bias in language.
Before this, I was a Postdoc/Young Investigator at the Allen Institute for AI (AI2), working on project Mosaic.
I received my PhD from the University of Washington where I was advised by
Noah Smith and
Yejin Choi, and have interned at AI2 working on social commonsense reasoning, and at Microsoft Research working on deep learning models for understanding human cognition.
