About meI am a fourth year PhD student and a sixth year graduate student (add 2 for MS) working with Prof. Dan Roth. I work on Machine Learning techniques for Natural Language Processing. More specifically, I work on supervised, semi-supervised, and unsupervised learning for structured output prediction for NLP applications. I am also interested in domain adapation and transfer learning for text data.
I have done research internships at Yahoo! Labs, Microsoft Research, and Google Research in the summers of 2008, 2010, and 2012, respectively. I am joining the Natural Language Understanding team at Google research in Fall, 2013 and hence am not looking for jobs at the moment.
