About Me

I am a final-year PhD candidate in the Department of Computer Science @ UVA. My advisor is Prof. Yangfeng Ji. 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 am on the academic job market for faculty positions. Please feel free to drop me an email.
