I'm a PhD candidate in the LUNAR (Language Understanding and Representation) lab at Brown University advised by Ellie Pavlick.

I work on grounded language representations: getting computers to understand language in the context of the world, like people do. My most recent work is on the New Brown Corpus dataset, a grounded virtual reality dataset inspired by childhood language acquisition.

I'm more broadly interested in NLP, AI, HCI, CogSci, and game/web development. My past projects include using grounded representations to study theories of concepts, virtual reality for language learning, and deep learning-driven interfaces.
