UT Dallas CS undergrads: If you received an A or A+ in at least one of my courses and are interested in the Ph.D. program, feel free to come talk to me.

Potential Ph.D. applicants: Owing to the large number of emails I have to process every day, I will not be able to respond to your emails unless I am interested in your application. Feel free to send me your CV, transcripts, and standardized test scores; if you do not hear from me within a week, it probably means that I am not interested in your application.

Research Interests

My general research area is machine learning of natural language. My recent projects have focused primarily on developing unsupervised and semi-supervised machine learning techniques for natural language processing, with the goal of reducing the amount of annotated data needed to build NLP applications and process resource-scarce languages. Areas in which my group has been working include:

More recently, I have collaborated with other research groups and worked on non-NLP problems. I am particularly interested in developing and applying search and learning techniques to computational problems that arise in areas such as:
