Hi! I’m Myra! I’m a PhD student in Computer Science at Stanford, advised by Dan Jurafsky. Grounded in critical theory and humanistic insights, my work aims to address algorithmic harms and social bias, as well as reveal the implicit norms that shape language models and other technologies. I am supported by the Knight-Hennessy Scholarship and the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship.
Previously, I studied computer science and history at Caltech, where I was advised by Yisong Yue, Joel Burdick, and Maura Dykstra. I also learned a lot from internships at Microsoft Research (with Adam Kalai) and DeepMind!
