Rik Koncel-Kedziorski

kedzior at washington dot edu
I am a Ph.D. candidate 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 discourse and narrative understanding and generation.

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, as it was their ethics and honesty that inspired me to take up the profession.
