I am a Ph.D. student at Duke University, advised by Bhuwan Dhingra. My research focuses on Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning. I am currently working on adversarial attacks on LLMs.

Before joining Duke, I completed my undergraduate studies at George Mason University, where I worked with Antonios Anastasopoulos on multilingual NLP.
