Greg Durrett

I am a recent graduate of Computer Science at UC Berkeley, where I was advised by Dan Klein. I work on a range of topics in statistical natural language processing, including coreference resolution, entity linking, and syntactic parsing. My work combines two broad thrusts: first, designing joint models that combine information across different tasks (TACL 2014) or across different views of a problem (ACL 2015), and second, building systems that strike a balance between being linguistically motivated and data driven (EMNLP 2013, ACL 2014).

In August 2017, I will be joining the UT Austin Computer Science Department as an Assistant Professor. I will be looking for new PhD students, so please email me and apply if you are interested!
