Hello! I am an assistant professor at TTI-Chicago, a philanthropically endowed academic computer science institute located on the University of Chicago campus. From 2012 to 2015, I was a research assistant professor at TTI-Chicago. I received my Ph.D. in 2012 from the Language Technologies Institute at Carnegie Mellon University where I was advised by Noah Smith. (CV)

My research focuses on natural language processing. I also develop general techniques for learning and inference, particularly in structured settings. Recent interests include paraphrase recognition, machine comprehension, commonsense knowledge representation, and narrative understanding. I collaborate with others in the speech and language group at TTIC.

I will be taking on new PhD students for the 2016-2017 academic year. If interested, please apply to TTIC.

I am also looking for interns for summer 2016 to work on NLP and deep learning. Please contact me if you're interested in more details, or apply online.
