Hi! I am a senior research scientist at the Johns Hopkins University Human Language Technology Center of Excellence (HLTCOE). I am also an assistant research professor in the Department of Computer Science and a member of the Center for Language and Speech Processing (CLSP). Previously, I was assistant professor at the Nara Institute of Science and Technology (2012-2015) and research associate at NTT CS Labs (2009-2012). I received my B.S. in 2003 from Rice University, and PhD in 2009 from the University of Washington, both in Electrical Engineering. My research interests lie at the intersection of Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning, in particular on areas relating to machine translation, semantics, and deep learning.

My recent projects include: (a) representation learning for words and various linguistic structures, (b) information extraction under low-resource settings, and (c) neural machine translation. I have the fortune of working with many wonderful collaborators on these projects at JHU, including: Ben Van Durme, Philipp Koehn, Matt Post, Sheng Zhang (co-advise with Ben Van Durme), Pamela Shapiro, Rachel Rudinger (qualifying project), Dingquan Wang (qualifying project).

To prospective students: Thanks for your interest! I am not able to reply to your inquiries individually, due to the large volumes of email I receive ("
