I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at UT Austin. My current research covers a range of topics in statistical natural language processing, including coreference resolution, entity linking, document summarization, and question answering. Solving these problems lets computers access the information in unstructured text and transform this information in structured ways. To handle the complexities of natural language, my work involves developing new machine learning and deep learning approaches to these problems, as well as devising scalable learning and inference techniques to train models on large datasets.
