Matt Watson

Hello! I am a software engineer at Google working on the Keras and TensorFlow teams. I am currently working on developing KerasNLP, a new open source library for NLP workflows within Keras ecosystem.

Almost an English major, I’m interested in fuzzy human problems and their intersection with technology. I am deeply interested in improving our understanding of language models, their mechanisms of success, and making sure we develop NLP tools that are aligned with our values.

Outside of work, I’m an avid climber and once spent three months in the woods hiking on the Pacific Crest Trail.
