I am a Ph.D. computer science student at University of Toronto working with Professor Yang Xu in the Computational Linguistics Group. My research interest lies at the intersection of
Natural Language Processing, Cognitive Science, and Machine Learning.
My current research involves developing computational
models of lexical creativity that support automated inference and
generation of innovative language use, e.g., noun-to-verb class extension
and verb syntactic frame extension. My approach draws on a combination of
deep generative and Bayesian probabilistic models, as well as cognitive
theories of categorization.
Before coming to Toronto, I spent three years as an undergraduate at McGill University, Montreal, where I worked with Prof. Jackie Cheung, Prof. Timothy O’Donnell and Prof. Thomas Shultz on NLP and cognitive science research projects.
