I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Cornell Tech at Cornell University. I received an NSF CAREER award, paper awards in EMNLP 2015, ACL 2017, and NAACL 2018, and Google faculty awards in 2015 and 2017. Previously, I received a B.Sc. summa cum laude from Tel Aviv University and a Ph.D. from the University of Washington.


My current research focus is in the intersection of natural language processing and machine learning. I focus on designing and building algorithms for learning expressive models for context-dependent natural language understanding, with specific interest in situated interactive scenarios.
