I am a faculty member in the Hebrew University. My fields of interest are Computational Linguistics and Natural Language Processing. Specifically, I conduct research on semantic (meaning) representation from a computational perspective. My research is tightly linked to statistical learning, language technology, such as machine translation and information extraction, and to the computational modeling of child language acquisition.

Some of the projects/research questions I am engaged in:

Brief Bio: I am an associate professor at the Hebrew University, working in the departments of Computer Science and Cognitive Science. Previously I was a research associate (post-doc) with Mark Steedman under the GramPlus project. I earned my PhD from the Hebrew University, where my supervisor was Ari Rappoport. During my PhD studies, I was a member of the Azrieli Fellows Program. Before that, I studied mathematics and cognitive sciences in the Hebrew University (BSc, summa cum laude).
