How does the mind work? How can computers model, do, and exceed what it does? I study natural language processing methods, especially in the contexts of dialogue and generative models. I think is futile to think about whether I am a computer scientist or a cognitive scientist. However, the goals of my research have shifted from 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. Thus, 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.
