I gradudated from Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Washington in Sept 2015. My research interests include Information Extraction, Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning. My advisor was Dan Weld. I have also collaborated with Luke Zettlemoyer, Sameer Singh, and Yejin Choi.

I’m currently working at a startup, Lattice. We are hiring!
