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.


I work in the intersection of natural languae processing, machine learning, vision, and robotics. My current main research focus is algorithms for natural language understanding with specific interest in situated interactions.
