Hi, I’m Gabriel Ilharco. I am a third-year Ph.D. student at the University of Washington. I am fortunate to be advised by Ali Farhadi and Hannaneh Hajishirzi. Prior to UW, I was an AI Resident at Google Research.
My research interests broadly include natural language processing and computer vision. I am particularity excited about building reliable, general-purpose machine learning systems. You can find more about my recent work from recent publications.
