I am a Ph.D. student at UNC Chapel Hill working with Prof Colin Raffel and Prof Mohit Bansal . I am interested in updating lanuguage models efficiently and effectively. Also, I am interested in parameter-efficient and few-shot learning.


About Me

I spent the summers of 2021 and 2022 interning at Amazon. Previously, I worked in Prof Andrew McCallum`s Information and Extraction Synthesis Lab while receiving a M.S. in Computer Science at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Before that, I received a B.S. in Computer Science and Statistics from Carnegie Mellon University. Ultimately, I aim to live in obedience to and unto the glory of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
