Hi, I'm Alexis! I am currently a first-year PhD student at MIT CSAIL, affiliated with the Language & Intelligence lab. I am supported by the Shillman Fellowship.

Before starting at MIT, I did research for two years as a predoctoral researcher on the AllenNLP team at the Allen Institute for AI (AI2). I graduated from Harvard University in 2020 with a joint B.A. in Computer Science and Philosophy.

My email is alexisro [at] mit [dot] edu. If you have questions about my work or want to discuss other research/academia-related topics, please feel free to reach out!
