I'm a fourth year PhD student working with Bin Yu on interpretable deep learning, natural language processing, causal inference and healthcare. At various points, I've collaborated with researchers at Google Brain, Facebook AI Research, and Facebook Core Data Science. My research is supported by a data science research award from Adobe and a fellowship from NSERC. I'm also a co-founder of a startup using AI to help salespeople better understand their clients (clientelligent.ai). Prior to coming to Berkeley, I graduated with highest honours from the University of Waterloo with majors in statistics, pure mathematics, and combinatorics and optimization.
