I am a Ph.D student in Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Washington. My advisor is Luke Zettlemoyer. I am working on semantic Natural Language Processing and Grounded Language acquisition. I am supported by an Intel Science and Technology Center Fellowship.
Previously, I was an undergraduate at the University of British Columbia, where I received a Bachelor of Science in Cognitive Systems. During that time, I worked with Giuseppe Carenini and the Summarization Group on abstractive summarization techniques in a variety of domains, including conversations and blogs.
