Hi, I'm Yifan Mai.
I'm a research software engineer from Singapore, currently living in the San Francisco Bay Area. I use any/all pronouns.
I currently work at Stanford Center for Research in Foundation Models (CRFM), where I am the tech lead of the Holistic Evaluation of Language Models (HELM) project. Our work provides a framework for benchmarking foundation models that helps researchers, developers and users better understand of the capabilities, limitations and risks of these models.
I have nine years of experience in software engineering, including full-stack web development, cloud infrastructure, machine learning infrastructure, and distributed data processing. I previously worked at Coursera, where I was a founding engineer, and at Google, where I worked on TensorFlow.
My other interests include programming languages, LGBTQIA+ activism, and climate change activism. In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, cooking, making electronic music, and playing indie video games.
