Research Summary

I am broadly interested in research about how to get machines to understand and respond to human languages (natural language processing & machine learning). A few questions that drive my recent research are:

how can we get models to efficiently learn knowledge?
how can we reduce potential harms learned by the model?
how can we advance better models and humans collaborations?
