I am currently a Senior Researcher at Microsoft Research Redmond. My research aims to understand 1) how to build generative AI models that can assist humans with an agency under dynamic goals in complex environments, and 2) how human feedback loops can be used to drive emergent model behaviors.

I obtained my Ph.D. degree in Computer Science at the University of Maryland, College Park where I worked with Marine Carpuat and other members of the CLIP lab. My Ph.D. work focuses on integrating stronger inductive biases for data-efficient, controllable, and robust machine translation.
