I have broad interests in natural language processing and machine learning (in particular, deep learning). My research is mostly driven by two goals: Developing effective and fundamental methods for learning representations of language and knowledge, and their interplay. I am specifically interested in how human knowledge (e.g., declarative, procedural, commonsense and linguistic!) can be obtained from text and how they can be represented, retrieved, reasoned and finally used in our intelligent systems. Building practical systems including question answering, information extraction and conversational agents. I am mostly excited about simple and principled approaches which can be scalable and generalizable to real-world scenarios.
