I am a fourth year Ph.D. student in Computer Science at University of Maryland working with Prof. Hal Daumé III. I am a member of the CLIP Lab.

My research interests involve moving towards trustworthy and fair natural language processing systems. Currently, I am working on analyzing how stereotypes manifest in large pretrained language models. I am also working on explainable AI and human-machine interactions.

Previously, I obtained my Bachelors degree in Computer Science from Bryn Mawr College and Mathematics from Haverford College.
