I am a computational social scientist working at the intersection of artificial intelligence and society, with a special focus on natural language processing (NLP). I read, write, and speak about employing NLP techniques for socially beneficial applications, as well as investigating how societal biases present in the data are reflected and (sometimes) reinforced through machine learned models. I am interested in participatory methods to bring forth marginalized perspectives in ML design and development, as well as ethical questions around AI from a global human rights perspective.
I am currently a Research Scientist at Google Research. I also hold a Research Affiliate position at the Stanford SPARQ institute. Prior to this, I was a postdoctoral researcher in the Computer Science department at Stanford University.
