About Me

I am a PhD student in the Image and Video Computing (IVC) Group at Boston University. I am fortunate to be advised by Professor Kate Saenko and Professor Bryan A. Plummer. I am broadly interested in vision and language representation learning as well as spurious correlations mitigation within Deep Learning.
