I am a sixth-year graduate student in
Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Washington. I am interested in machine learning for natural language understanding. I am currently working with
Professor Pedro Domingos on coarse-to-fine inference techniques for textual inference. I was supported by an NSF fellowship
from 2010-2013, and I am currently supported by the DARPA DEFT program.

I grew up in New England but quickly decided the cold snowy winters were not for me. I completed my B.S. in Computer Science at Stanford University in June 2008. I graduated with honors with an honors thesis entitled "Applying Markov Logic for Textual Entailment". During my time at Stanford, I worked in The Stanford Natural Language Processing Group under the supervision of Professor Christopher Manning.
In my past life, I was a member of The One The Only The Truly Incomparable Leland Stanford Junior University Marching Band (see LSJUMB). I was the sexion leader for the Tenrz (the noblest of all the saxophones!), Social [Manager], and a member of the ABF Drumz.
