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.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. A note to prospective students.
