I am a research scientist at the Human Language Technology Center of Excellence and in the Department of Computer Science at Johns Hopkins University. My main research interest is machine translation, but I also like things like grammar correction, parsing, and other things that involve syntax.

I have once or continue to maintain the Joshua decoder, co-advise (with Benjamin Van Durme) Keisuke Sakaguchi, and co-organize the Workshop on Statistical Machine Translation. I am a member of the NAACL executive board (2015–2016) and am a 2015 NAACL publications co-chair (with Adam Lopez).

What's new

(Feb. 2015) I am co-organizing (with Paul McNamee) a summer SCALE workshop on speech-to-text machine translation for low-resource languages.

(Dec. 2014) I was elected to a two-year appointment to the NAACL executive committee.

(Jan. 2014) Adam Lopez and I will be teaching our machine translation course again this spring.

(Dec. 2013): I put together an annotated transcript of Bob Mercer and Peter Brown's (of Renaissance Technology) talks and Q&A session at the 2013 EMNLP workshop Twenty Years of Bitext.
