I'm a Ph.D student at Stanford (since 2010)
advised by Chris Manning,
natural language processing group.
I graduated from The University of California (Berkeley) in 2010 with a B.S.
in Electrical Engineering / Computer Science.
My interests are in
natural language understanding
Particularly, I am interested in interpreting spatial and temporal
expressions and, more broadly, in finding grounded meaning in natural
Recently, I have also been thinking about generalizing knowledge stored in
open-domain sources such as
In my free time, I enjoy the outdoors (hiking / camping / backpacking),
board games, and movies.
