I'm a Senior Applied Scientist at Amazon Alexa AI in Sunnyvale, CA working on Generative AI for Alexa. Most recently, I have been working on creative language applications (e.g., Create with Alexa). Prior to joining Amazon, I completed my PhD in 2019 working on stylistic control for natural language generation with Prof. Marilyn Walker at the Natural Language and Dialog Systems Lab at UC Santa Cruz. My recent research interests include creative content generation and mitigating bias and harmful content in generative applications.
