About MeI am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Illinois Chicago. Prior joining UIC I was an Assistant Professor at the Univesity of North Carolina, Charlotte. Before that, I was a post-doctoral researcher working with Andrew McCallum at UMass Amherst. I got my Ph.D. from University of Oregon working with Daniel Lowd.
