Starting Fall 2020, I will be an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at the University of Maryland, College Park. During 2019-2020, I am a Young Investigator for the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence (AI2) in Seattle, WA.

I recently defended my PhD at Johns Hopkins University, in the Center for Language and Speech Processing (CLSP), 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.
