University of Arizona
1040 E. 4th Street
Tucson, AZ 85721
My primary appointment is with the Computer Science department at the University of Arizona.
I have a courtesy appointment with Linguistics and Cognitive Science.
Before Arizona, I was a research scientist in the NLP group at Stanford and
chief scientist of Lex Machina.
I did my PhD in computer science at Southern Methodist University.
I work on systems that process and extract meaning from natural language texts, including
(answering natural language questions),
(extracting specific relations and events),
semantic role labeling
(extracting semantic frames that model who did what to whom, when and where),
and other computational linguistics problems.
For Fall 2015 I teach Text Retrieval and Web Search (CS 483/583).
I am always looking for motivated graduate students who are interested in natural language processing or applied machine learning.
Funding is available for amazing candidates.
