Natalia Silveira

I'm a Ph.D. student in the Linguistics Department at Stanford University. I work in the Natural Language Processing Group, advised by Chris Manning. I'm a member of the team that designed the Universal Dependencies standard and released the EWT dependency corpus. My dissertation is about different ways in which design choices we make in UD can affect its usefulness in NLP applications.
