Hello! I'm Sky.

An undergraduate researcher at the University of Michigan, interested in natural language processing and multi-agent systems.

Research Assistant @ EAGLe Lab (Professor Joyce Chai)
Research Assistant @ Blablablab (Professor David Jurgens)
Previously @ SRG (Professors Arunesh Sinha & Michael Wellman), NASA (GSFC-610.2), and Microsoft (Azure IoT Infrastructure).

Interests (broadly): Grounding, situated dialogue, computational sociolinguistics, diachronic change, machine theory of mind, reinforcement learning, game theory, adversarial learning.

This summer, I'll be joining the Perceptual Computing Laboratory at Waseda University as a research intern!

Hello! I'm Sky.

I'm interested in research at the intersection of natural language processing and multi-agent systems: building agents 🤖 that think 🤔 like humansTM, communicate with humans, and that are able to learn efficiently from humans and other agents. In this regard, grounded, situated language learning and machine theory of mind are areas of particular interest to me.

Looking at how language 🤬 itself is reflective of society's beliefs and values, and how such norms have evolved over time is, too, an area of intrigue. What causes these shifts in cultural norms, who 👪 are the most affected, and how can we best capture these changes? In this regard, computational sociolinguistics comes into play.

How can we best incorporate these evolving belief systems into multiagent settings towards the development of more efficient and more effective linguistic communication protocols 🦜? That is the continuing question.
