I'm a first-year PhD at the University of Waterloo under the supervision of Jimmy Lin. I'm also mentored by Lili, Ferhan, and Yaoliang. I work at the junction of natural language processing, speech recognition, and deep learning.
My overall research direction is in improving the efficiency of humans, machines, and everything in between. How do we learn parsimonious representations of data? What are sources of user inefficiency in productionized models? How do we accelerate large neural networks? Those are a few questions that I explore.
