My research is driven by the goal of integrating intelligent machines more naturally into our daily lives, with a particular focus on probing and testing large language models to enhance their communication and reasoning capabilities. By developing advanced prompt engineering techniques, I aim to address the challenges of natural language processing and improve systems in dialogue, summarization, and recommendation, ensuring these models are both trustworthy and practically applicable.
