I'm a second-year PhD student at UC Berkeley in the Natural Language Processing Group and Berkeley AI Research Lab, advised by Dan Klein. I'm currently interested in structured prediction, and systems that ground language in perception and interaction. Recently, I've worked on distributional semantics, question answering, and applications in precision medicine and public health.
Previously, I studied at the Cambridge Computer Laboratory and the University of Arizona, and interned with Microsoft Research, the Nara Institute of Science and Technology, and RWTH Aachen.
I'm supported by an NDSEG Fellowship, and previously by a Churchill Scholarship.
