Welcome! I am a Senior Research Scientist at Google Brain. I recently finished my PhD in Computer Science (Machine Learning) at Cornell University, where I was very fortunate to be advised by Jon Kleinberg. Prior to my PhD, I completed my BA and Masters in Mathematics at the University of Cambridge (Trinity College). My interests in mathematics and computer science began through many fun experiences competing in national mathematical Olympiads in high school, and being on the UK team at the China Girls Math Olympiad.


My research focuses on enabling better interfacing between humans and AI systems, through developing techniques that give insights into the internals of our modern machine learning systems, and using these insights to inform their design and interaction with humans at deployment. I’ve been fortunate to have many wonderful mentors on these topics, including Jon Kleinberg, Samy Bengio, Quoc Le, Geoff Hinton and Oriol Vinyals.


I like sharing thoughts on Machine Learning research and applications on Twitter and (occasionally) my blog.
