Hello! I am a research assistant professor at the Toyota Technological Institute at Chicago. I received my Ph.D. in 2012 from the Language Technologies Institute
at Carnegie Mellon University where I was advised by Noah Smith. I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Pennsylvania
in 2004 and worked at MIT Lincoln Laboratory from 2004 to 2006. A recent CV is available here.
I am interested in using computers to solve problems that involve natural language. I work both on core statistical techniques (models, algorithms, and learning) as well as applications (machine translation, social media analysis, and text-driven forecasting).
In May 2013, Karen Livescu and I hosted Midwest Speech and Language Days, a two-day regional workshop on speech and language research.
