I am a final year PhD student in the Center for Language and Speech Processing at Johns Hopkins University, advised by Benjamin Van Durme. My research focuses on problems in natural language understanding, including knowledge acquisition from text, commonsense inference, computationally-tractable semantic representations, and semantic parsing. I am also a contributing member of the Decompositional Semantics Initiative. Before coming to JHU, I received my B.S. in Computer Science from Yale University, where I worked with Dana Angluin and Bob Frank.
