I am enthused about NLP's expanding outreach in our lives and its unexplored abilities to understand human nature better and more efficiently than ever. Language is more than words, it expresses identities, psychologies, cultures and much more. I find myself challenged in directing NLP language models to look beyond the current limitations and consider the human behind the language. The purpose of my research is to enable the growth of more empathy in an AI-future centric world, thereby augmenting humanity rather than detracting from it.
