Welcome! I am an Assistant Professor of the Computer and Information Science department at University of Mississippi (Ole Miss). I got my doctorate degree at Penn State in the College of IST. My doctorate advisor was Professor Dongwon Lee. I am an ex-Amazonian at Alexa Privacy and an ex-intern at Yahoo Research and VMWare OCTO. I am on a mission to advance the field of AI and Machine Learning, specifically in the domain of Natural Language Processing (NLP). My goal is to enhance the robustness, safety, and explainability of these technologies, ensuring that the society can harness their power with confidence and clarity. I am looking for highly motivated students to do research in responsble AI for NLP models. Ole Miss also has a competitive four-year award FCN Founders Graduate Fellowship for Ph.D. applicants.
