I am a PhD candidate in the Stanford Natural Language Processing Group, part of the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Lab. My advisor is Christopher D. Manning. I'm at Microsoft Research for the Fall 2009 quarter, working with Susan Dumais. My research interests include natural language processing, machine learning, information retrieval, and the web.
My undergraduate degrees from MIT (2004) are in Computer Science and Math. Prior to Stanford, I spent some time at IBM's Zurich Research Lab working on data mining. In the summers, I teach Java to Palestinian and Israeli teenagers in Jerusalem through MEET.
