My work envisions new forms of human-computer interaction by leveraging state-of-the-art advances in natural language processing and machine learning. In particular, this work introduced the concept of, and the techniques for creating generative agents--computational agents that simulate human behavior. I have been recognized with a best paper award and nominations at CHI, CSCW, and ASSETS, and have been reported in venues such as The New York Times, The New Yorker, NBC, Nature Machine Intelligence, The Times, and The Guardian. I am supported by the Microsoft Research Ph.D. Fellowship, Stanford School of Engineering Fellowship, and Siebel Scholarship.
