I am a final year PhD student in Computer Science at Stanford University. I work with Christopher D. Manning in the Stanford Natural Language Processing (NLP) group and closely collaborate with the Interactive Data Lab under Jeffrey Heer.
My research interests are building natural language processing and data analysis systems using machine learning tools. Recently, my work has focused on practical and interpretable information extraction systems (such as extracting entities and relations from text) that use only a few examples (or prototypes) as supervision.
I have collaborated with Diana MacLean, Sanjay Kairam, and Jason Chuang on data analysis of medical forums, building effective automated and manual text annotation tools, and evaluation of topic models, respectively. For my Master's thesis at UT Austin, I worked on combining NLP and computer vision with Ray Mooney and Kristen Grauman.
I am graduating in summer 2015 and am looking for full time opportunities.
