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 recently wrote some advice on being a happier PhD student.
