Belinda Li


I am a first-year PhD student at MIT, affiliated with the language & intelligence lab @ MIT. My advisor is Jacob Andreas.

Previously, I spent a year at Facebook AI Applied Research on the AI Integrity team. There I worked on applying state-of-the-art techniques from AI and NLP research to combat integrity problems (i.e. hate speech) on Facebook. Before that, I obtained my B.S. in Computer Science at the University of Washington, where I worked with Luke Zettlemoyer. You can view more in my CV here.

If you are an undergrad interested in NLP or machine learning research, please feel free to reach out to me! You can view my contact policy here.
