My research interest is data mining and its applications. Previously, I worked on tasks such as tagging, text clustering, image annotation, and text labeling. Currently, I am focusing on research problems around conversational AI such as LLM alignment (PPO, DPO), multi-modal foundation models, LLM-based agents, and efficient methods for NLP.
