About Me

CV

I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Language Technologies Institute at Carnegie Mellon University, advised by Graham Neubig.

My main research interest lies in natural language processing (NLP) and I have worked on various NLP tasks across a broad spectrum of domains and languages. My current work focuses on developing models for multilingual and low-resource NLP.

I was recently named to the Forbes 30 Under 30 in Science list for my work on NLP for endangered languages!

In the past, I’ve worked as a research intern at Bloomberg AI and as a research fellow at Microsoft Research.

More information about my work experience, publications, and academic service can be found in my CV.

I am best reached by email at srijhwan@cs.cmu.edu. Feel free to reach out about my research or anything else I might be able to help with. I’m always happy to answer questions about getting started with NLP research and applying to Ph.D. programs.
