I am interested in building safe and robust intelligent systems with a human-centered design. To accomplish this, my research develops novel machine learning techniques, which are often rooted in probabilistic modeling and computational statistics. Questions I am particularly interested in are: how can we incorporate a human's prior knowledge?, how can we detect when the system is failing?, and how to combine human and machine decision making? Some applications of importance to me are: healthcare, moderation of online content, and sign language processing.
