I am a fifth-year PhD candidate in computer science at Stanford University, where I work in the Natural Language Processing Group. I am advised by Percy Liang, and my research is graciously supported by a NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. These days, I'm mostly interested in building practically-useful NLP systems, especially for information-seeking applications.
Previously, I received undergraduate degrees in computer science and linguistics from the University of Washington, where I worked with Noah A. Smith. I've also spent time at Google Research (working with Kenton Lee and Kristina Toutanova), the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence (AI2) (working with Matt Gardner) and the USC Information Sciences Institute (working with Kevin Knight and Jonathan May).
I owe a lot to the patience of several research mentors who were willing to spend their own time showing me the ropes when I was getting started. If you're interested in getting started in NLP research and think it'd be useful to chat, please feel free to email me.
