In Fall 2018, I'll be joining UMass Amherst as an assistant professor. Currently, I'm a Young Investigator at AI2 working with Luke Zettlemoyer. I received my Ph.D. in June 2017 from the Department of Computer Science at the University of Maryland, College Park, advised by Jordan Boyd-Graber and Hal Daumé III. My main research interest is in designing deep neural networks for both traditional NLP tasks as well as new problems that involve understanding creative language.
Previously, I received a BS from the Department of Computer Science at Washington University in St. Louis under the guidance of Yixin Chen. I was a research intern at MetaMind in Spring 2015 and Microsoft Research in Summer 2016.
