My work: I aim to make language a complementary part of the interface for any application (e.g. from desktop spreadsheets to mobile apps). This involves solving a range of fascinating challenges through new methods in Artificial Intelligence and Crowdsourcing.

Interests:
Executable Semantic Parsing (e.g., text-to-SQL)
Dialogue
Crowdsourcing
Human-in-the-Loop Systems / Hybrid Intelligence

Me: I am currently a Visiting Scholar at Harvard University, an Honorary Senior Lecturer at the University of Sydney, and a Research Associate II at the University of Michigan.

In mid-2022, I will be a Senior Lecturer (ie., research tenure-track) at the University of Sydney.
