I am a Ph.D. student in the Program in Brain Research: Computation and Information Processing of the Edmond & Lily Safra Center for Brain Sciences. I am a member of the Computational Linguistics and Natural Language Processing lab at the School of Computer Science and Engineering of The Hebrew University of Jerusalem. My advisors are Prof. Ari Rappoport and Dr. Omri Abend. I did my B.Sc. in mathematics and computer science at the Open University of Israel. Since 2008, I have been a software engineer at IBM Research, where I am a member of the Debating Technologies group.
I am interested in the semantic structure of natural language, and in the application of neural networks to natural language processing. I am currently working on a parser for UCCA, a cross-linguistically applicable framework for semantic representation, which builds on extensive typological work, and supports rapid annotation.
