I am a computational linguistics PhD student at UW Linguistics
I have a bachelor's degree from UW CSE (2014).
I currently TA for Intro to Syntax for Computational Linguistics
The next Seattle musical performance that I am going to is
Dvor̆ák and the New World on October 2.
This means a symphony will be played,
which Dvor̆ák composed while he was in America.
Besides, a violin concerto by Korngold will be performed.
Korngold was an American composer of the 20th century.
One of my most favorite things by Dvor̆ák is his Serenade for strings.
I have never heard Korngold!
I was born and grew up in a fantastic place called Akademgorodok near Novosibirsk, Russia. You can see a lot of forest if you zoom out. It is a town built specifically for a University and a number of research institutes. My parents both worked in such institutes, and so did parents of most of my friends, and maybe that's why I decided to become a researcher myself.
