About Me

Hello! I am a BSMS student at Georgia Tech where I work on Natural Language Processing (NLP) and am advised by Prof. Alan Ritter. This summer, I was also an intern at Center for Human-Compatible Artificial Intelligence (CHAI) at UC Berkeley working in Prof. Stuart Russell’s group.

Current Research Interests: I am interested in building and evaluating efficient human-in-the-loop (HITL) systems and investigating applications of HITL learning that can be deployed to critical domains (e.g. misinformation). Additionally, I am interested in large language model (LLM) robustness, specifically as it relates to privacy-preservation and model hijacking.

I am applying to ML/NLP Ph.D. programs in Fall 2023.

Feel free to reach out at emendes3[at]gatech[dot]edu.
