About me

Hi! I am a Senior Research Scientist and Tech Lead at Google AI working on Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning. I am currently based in Singapore, Google APAC. You can find my Google Research homepage here. Detailed biography can be found here. These days I’m interested in large language models, transformers, universal models and next generation search.
