I am interested in natural language processing. Here are some areas I have worked on:
- Semantic parsing: Parse the input sentence into some representation of its meaning. In particular, I am interested in executable representations such as database queries or computer programs.
- Dialog system: Understand the user's sentences within their contexts (prior utterances and the environment).
- Web interaction: Interact with possibly unseen web pages based on the given natural language commands.
I did my PhD at Stanford University,
where I was advised by Percy Liang.
I was part of the Stanford NLP Group.
Before that, I received my bachelor's degree from MIT.
I like ice cream, coding, and puzzles.
