I am a Ph.D. student in the Department of Linguistics at the University of Washington in Seattle, USA, co-advised by Hannaneh Hajishirzi and Gina-Anne Levow.

(A short resume.)

Abridged Research Statement

My research focuses on linguistically-informed, data-driven approaches to semantic and discourse understanding.

Meta Teaching Statement

Any teaching statement to which I would attach my name would heavily cite the work of Paulo Friere, Imre Lakatos, and bell hooks, for it was their ethics and honesty that inspired me to take up the profession.
