I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at UT Austin. My research covers a range of topics in statistical natural language processing, including coreference resolution, entity linking, document summarization, and syntactic parsing. Solving these problems lets computers access and transform the information in unstructured text in a structured way. To handle the complexities of natural language, my work involves developing new structured machine learning and deep learning approaches to these problems, as well as devising scalable learning and inference techniques to train models on large datasets. See my research page for more information.

Prior to joining UT Austin, I received my Ph.D. from UC Berkeley in 2016, where I was advised by Dan Klein and part of the Berkeley NLP Group.
