I am currently on sabbatical at Google DeepMind (based in Seattle) and am not taking students until summer 2025.
My field of research is Natural Language Processing. I work on Natural Language Understanding problems such as Semantic Parsing, Question Answering, Paraphrasing, Reading Comprehension, and Textual Entailment. I am mostly excited about learning from weak supervision that is easy to obtain and grounded in the world, and in tasks that require multi-step inference or handling of language compositionality.
I am an associate professor at the Blavatnik School of Computer Science, and a Research Scientist and The Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence.
