I am an assistant professor in computer science at UMass Amherst and a member of UMass NLP. Previously, I was a Young Investigator at AI2; before that, I completed my PhD at the University of Maryland, College Park, advised by Jordan Boyd-Graber and Hal Daumé III. My research interests lie broadly in natural language processing and machine learning. Problems that I'm currently excited about include:

(1) Designing improved methods for modeling and evaluating long-form text generation (e.g., document-level translation, long-form QA)
(2) Building machine-in-the-loop text generation systems that help human authors compose text
(3) Understanding and generating fictional narratives
