Nanyun (Violet) Peng

I am a Research Assistant Professor at the Computer Science Department, and Research Lead at the Information Sciences Institute, University of Southern California. I got my PhD in Computer Science at Johns Hopkins University, Center for Language and Speech Processing. My research interests span Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning, with special interests in information extraction, and creative language generation. I have backgrounds in Linguistics and Economics and held BAs in both.

Prospective Students: I am recruiting several talented and well-motivated Ph.D. students every year! More information please see my group page.

The ISI NLP group has a long history of hosting summer interns for interesting research projects. It's fun, and pays well. More information please see the summer internship information page.
