my photo I am an assistant professor in the department of Computer Science at University of Virginia. My research goal is to build intelligence systems that solve real-world problems by automatically acquiring knowledge. This challenging goal involves two fundamental components: A machine learning component that can efficiently make coherent decisions for problems with complex structures, and a natural language understanding component that enables the system to extract knowledge from unstructured text. I have been published broadly in machine learning, natural language processing, artificial intelligence, and data mining.

If you are interested in joining my group, please read my Research Statement written for prospective students. However, due to the large number of these inquiries, I generally cannot respond personally. If you're a UVA student, please drop by my office hour.
