I am the William Wulf Career Enhancement Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science @ UVa, where I lead the Information and Language Processing (ILP) lab. I am interested in building machine learning models for text understanding and generation.

From Aug. 2016 to Jul. 2018, I was a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering @ UW, where I worked with Noah Smith. I finished my Ph.D. in 2016 from the Computational Linguistics Lab at Georgia Tech. My Ph.D. advisor was Jacob Eisenstein.

I am looking for Ph.D. students for Fall 2022. Please email me if you are interested in NLP/Machine Learning and have a strong Mathematics or Statistics background.
