I’m a Ph.D. student doing research on Natural Language Processing.

My research focuses on developing question-answering methods that generalize to harder questions than we have supervision for. Learning from human examples (supervised learning) won’t scale to these kinds of questions, so I am investigating other paradigms that recursively break down harder questions into simpler ones (i.e., Debate and Iterated Amplification).
