Skyler Hallinan

I'm a Master's student (BS/MS) at the University of Washington studying computer science. I am fortunate to work with Yejin Choi. I have also previously worked with Hanna Hajishirzi. I do research in natural language processing: my goal is to develop artificial intelligence (AI) systems with robust reasoning capabilities that can be flexibly adapted to accommodate different scenarios. I aim to do this via three intertwined pillars: learning algorithms, inference-time algorithms, and data curation. Feel free to reach out to chat!
