University of Toronto


I am a PhD student in the Computational Linguistics group at the University of Toronto, where I’m supervised by Prof. Graeme Hirst, and co-supervised by Prof. Frank Rudzicz. I am broadly interested in developing techniques that can help machines interpret, understand and participate in human communication. Apart from work, I like reading, visiting the city’s inexhaustible list of pretty cafes, and being outdoors.
