Hi, I'm Srini and I'm a PhD student in Computer Science in the NLP group at the University of Washington, Seattle. I am advised by Luke Zettlemoyer and Alvin Cheung. My main interests lie in joint modeling of natural language (NL) and general purpose source code, by learning from vast amounts of web data. I am excited about using NL to code models to 1) help programmers write efficient and readable code quickly, and, 2) help users interact with computer programs/databases/voice assistants. I've done internships at FAIR (2018) and AI2 (2017).
Before grad school, I worked briefly at Facebook in the Ads Ranking and Optimization team.
I have a Masters degree in Computer Science from Stanford University where I worked on BioInformatics and Theoretical CS.
I enjoy summiting peaks, traveling to national parks, and photography.
