Hi there! My name is Chau. I use she/her pronouns and publish under Chau Minh Pham. I am currently a Computer Science Ph.D. student at UMass Amherst, where I am advised by Professor Mohit Iyyer in the Natural Language Processing (NLP) Lab.

Previously, I graduated from Colgate University, where I was advised by Professor Joel Sommers. I spent most of my undergraduate years working on statistical test visualization apps at the Data Science Collaboratory. I also worked briefly on AI harm anticipation at Microsoft Research (FATE) and COVID-19 emotion analysis in the CRA-WP DREU program.

I use my middle name, Minh, in publications to distinguish myself from other Chau Phams who are also PhD students. "Minh" means bright and intelligent, while "Châu" refers to a precious pearl. Together, the name "Minh Châu" carries my parents' wishes for me to grow into a gifted and pure human being.

In my free time, I enjoy powerlifting, reading, and cooking experimentally.

I am originally from Hanoi, Vietnam 🇻🇳. If you are planning to visit Hanoi, I would recommend checking out Nguyen Phan Que Mai's read your way through Hanoi and bún ốc (escargot noodle soup).

I really like progress bars (tqdm, sparkline, etc.).
