Much of human knowledge is encoded in text. Broadly I am interested in getting computers to better understand natural language. My research uses machine learning to extract knowledge from large heterogeneous corpora, for example, Twitter and the Web. I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Washington and was a postdoctoral fellow in the Machine Learning Department at Carnegie Mellon.Prospective Students: I am looking to hire one or two PhD students per year. I am also happy to work with masters or undergraduate students who are intersted in research opportunities in natural language processing and machine learning. To learn more about how to join my group, please read this note to prospective students.
