I am currently accepting Ph.D. students. If you would like to work with me, please apply to the CSE PhD program (deadline January 11). Due to the high volume of emails that I receive, I do not have time to respond to emails from prospective students.
I am an Assistant Professor in the Jack Baskin School of Engineering at UC Santa Cruz, having joined in Fall 2019.
My research lies in the areas of natural language processing, structured prediction, and deep learning. My work focuses on enabling computers to understand and generate natural language better (semantic parsing and generation) and to help people who speak different languages communicate (machine translation).
My collaborators and I developed JAMR, which is a semantic parser, generator and aligner for the Abstract Meaning Representation (AMR). I gave a tutorial at NAACL 2015 on AMR with Nathan Schneider and Tim O’Gorman (slides, video).
