I work on Multilingual Natural Language Processing, focusing on efficient data utilization for low-resource languages, and any other scenarios when the data with desired properties is limited. My goal is to create competitive NLP systems that support speakers of any language variety in the world.

I am currently a research scientist at Google Research working on Multilingual Natural Language Processing. Before that, I did my PhD at the Language Technologies Institute of CMU, working with Graham Neubig. Previously I did my undergrad at University of Notre Dame, where I worked with David Chiang. I was honored to be supported by the Apple Scholars in AI/ML PhD Fellowship.
