Research Interests

My research interest is in natural language processing, machine learning, knowledge representation, computer vision, and artificial intelligence in general. My current research focuses on combining symbolic, probabilistic and neural approaches to linguistic structures, including (1) their representation, inference, and automatic learning; and (2) their direct application in natural language processing and extended application in other AI areas such as probabilistic knowledge representation and computer vision.
