Hi, I'm Jane!

My formal name is Jane Dwivedi-Yu (also Jane Yu). I am a researcher at Facebook AI Research and I work in natural language processing. Before that, I was a Ph.D. student in the EECS department at the University of California, Berkeley.


UC Berkeley

I completed my Ph.D. in 2019 on computational tools for immune repertoire characterization and primer set design and was advised by Professor Yun S. Song. [thesis]


I received my Bachelor of Arts and Sciences in both Computer Science and Chemistry in 2014.
