I am a Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing researcher interested in building teachable personal assistants. Broadly, I am interested in the related problems of interactive semantic parsing, question answering and knowledge base construction.
I obtained my PhD from Cornell University, working with Christoph Studer and Hod Lipson
I spent two years as a Postdoc in the Machine Learning Department at Carnegie Mellon University, working with Tom Mitchell on building an instructable (teachable) personal assistant.
In 2018, together with Bishan Yang, I co-founded a startup called LAER.AI, building next-generation enterprise intelligence. We are actively hiring!
