Much have I learned from my teachers, more from my colleagues, but most from my students.
- Sameer Bansal, Low-resource speech translation. Co-advised with Sharon Goldwater.
- Nikolay Bogoychev, Machine translation.
- Naomi Saphra, Deep learning and social media.
- Clara Vania, Deep learning and morphology.
PhD student coauthors
- Janie Sinclair, Dialogue and educational NLP. Primary advisor: Dragan Gašević. Co-advised with Chris Lucas.
- Kate McCurdy, Morphology in neural models. Co-advised with Sharon Goldwater.
- Katarzyna Pruś, Modeling morphology
- Michael Auli, PhD 2012. Now at Facebook AI Research.
Michael's thesis applied advanced machine learning techniques to a parser for combinatory categorial grammar, a linguistically expressive grammar formalism. It remained state-of-the-art for several years afer he developed it. After graduation Michael began working on neural translation, and is one of the key researchers behind Facebook's convolutional neural machine translation system.
- Federico Fancellu, PhD 2018. Primary advisor: Bonnie Webber.
Federico's thesis developed state-of-the-art models for computational detection of negation in English and Chinese. He now a postdoc with my colleague Mirella Lapata and we continue to collaborate with Sorcha Gilroy on semantic parsing.
- Sorcha Gilroy, PhD defended January 2019, to be conferred in July 2019.
Sorcha's thesis surveys a range of mathematical tools for probabilistic generative models of graphs, and presents several new results. Among her many accomplishments as a PhD student, she won an outstanding paper award at NAACL 2018.
