I study natural
language processing, especially in the
contexts of dialogue and generative models.
The goals of my research
have spanned understanding cognition to making
make information universally accessible to
people, all by advancing Artificial Intelligence.
I joined Google Research, leaving a position as
Associate Professor at Penn State, in
2019. I am not taking new students. If
you'd like to work with me (post-PhD) on NLP and
dialogue, please apply
to Google Research.
