I am a research scientist with PRIOR team at the non-profit AI research institute the Allen Institute for AI. My general research interests are in unified vision and language systems and out-of-domain generalization. My recent projects have involved training models that can complete many multi-modal tasks with a shared architecture. Previously I have worked on training models to play the drawing and guessing game Iconary, and my PhD focused on ways to prevent models using spurious correlations or non-generalization patterns found in the training data.
