I am a 4th year Computer Science PhD candidate in the Intelligent Interactive Systems Group at Harvard, advised by Krzysztof Gajos and Stuart Shieber. During my PhD, I did internships at Microsoft Research and Adobe Research. Before Harvard, I received my Bachelor and Master in Munich, Germany working with Björn Schuller. I also spent some time working in South Korea.

Research Statement

I work to advance human-human communication with machine intelligence. While machines have advantages over humans, such as nearly instantaneous access to a large knowledge base, or massive parallelization of structured work, many conversational skills remain unique to humans, such as expressing empathy or being able to solve highly unstructured problems. I believe that these two components will fundamentally transform the way we communicate with each other.
