I am a graduate student in the department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Washington. My advisor is Luke Zettlemoyer. My undergraduate degree in Computer Science is from Tel Aviv University. I received a Yahoo Key Scientific Challenge award in 2012. I previously worked with Patrick Pantel and Michael Gamon at Microsoft Research, and more recently with Slav Petrov and Dipanjan Das at Google Research.
My current research is in the intersection of natural language processing, machine learning and learning through interaction, with specific interest in situated/grounded language acquisition and natural language dialog.
The University of Washington Semantic Parsing Framework (UW SPF) is an open source research software package.
