I am looking for PhD students. If you are a Cornell CS student, email me. Otherwise, apply to Cornell!

Upcoming visits in Ithaca: Sept 29 through Oct 2 (with Brown Bag and AI Seminar talks).


My current research is in the intersection of natural language processing, machine learning and formal semantics. I focus on designing and building algorithms to recover formal representations of language meaning, with specific interest in learning in situated interactions using weak supervision.



SPF is moving to Cornell! v2.0 will be released shortly with our EMNLP 2015 AMR parser.

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. For technical questions and queries, see the UW SPF Google Group.
