I am an Assistant Professor at the Computer Science Department, University of California, Los Angeles. I got my PhD in Computer Science at Johns Hopkins University, Center for Language and Speech Processing, after that, I spent three awesome years at University of Southern California as a Research Assistant Professor at the Computer Science Department, and Research Lead at the Information Sciences Institute. My research interests span Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning, with special interests in creative language generation and information extraction. 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.
