I'm interested in developing human-centered language technologies. Our Minnesota NLP group's current research is focused on building human-centric NLP systems by learning from human perception, interaction, and disagreements:
  • Scaffold LLMs with human cognition by learning from annotated explanations, eye-tracking, feedback, or instructions
  • Improve productivity of scientific reading, writing, and reviewing with interactive and collaborative NLP systems
  • Build inclusive and individualized NLP systems by learning from disagreements among humans
