I am currently pursuing a Ph.D. in the Language Technologies Institute of the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. As a Ph.D. candidate, I work on methods for computationally processing natural language, specifically including the areas of event detection, event coreference resolution, question answering, information retrieval, question generation, and computer-assisted language learning. In particular, I often explore computational methods that deal with meanings of language by constructing and utilizing semantic resources with machine-learnable models.


Research Interests

My research interests are in computational semantics, statistical natural language processing, and knowledge representation and reasoning. My general research questions are as follows:
