About Me

I am a fourth-year graduate student in Computer Science at UC Berkeley, advised by Dan Klein. I work on a range of topics in statistical natural language processing including coreference resolution, morphological analysis, and syntactic parsing.

I graduated from MIT in June 2010. During my junior and senior years, I worked with Una-May O'Reilly.

When I'm not doing machine learning, I like to play the clarinet. I currently play in the University Symphony at Berkeley (click the link for upcoming concerts). If you're ever in Boston, check out my old wind ensemble, MITWE!
