I am a Ph.D. student in the department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Washington. My advisor is Luke Zettlemoyer. I received my BSc in Computer Science summa cum laude from Tel Aviv University. I was fortunate to collaborate with Patrick Pantel and Michael Gamon at Microsoft Research, and with Slav Petrov and Dipanjan Das at Google Research. In 2012, I received a Yahoo Key Scientific Challenge award, and in 2014 I will be supported by a Microsoft Research PhD Fellowship.
My current research is in the intersection of natural language processing, machine learning and learning through interaction. I am specifically interested in recovering the meaning of language in situated interactive environments using the weak signal generated by system interactions.
The University of Washington Semantic Parsing Framework (UW SPF) is an open source research software package. It includes a semantic parsing algorithm, a flexible meaning representation language and learning algorithms. To get SPF and learn more about it, click here. SPF's documentation is available here.
