Broadly, I do research in natural language processing (NLP). More specifically, I am interested in question-driven learning models for extracting, accessing, and combining knowledge from natural language. I am advised by Hannaneh Hajishirzi, Ali Farhadi, and Oren Etzioni. I received BS in Electrical Engineering & Computer Science at UC Berkeley. Before coming to UW, I was a software engineer at Oracle.
