I'm seeking an academic position to start in Fall, 2018. Please find my materials here: CV, research statement, teaching statement, and diversity and inclusion statement. Thank you for your interest! News - We're organizing a NIPS workshop on weak supervision! See you on December 9th!
- The materials from our Snorkel workshop in collaboration with the Mobilize Center are now online.
- I presented our paper on learning the structure of generative models without labeled data at ICML 2017. See our blog post for an informal summary.
- My thesis on hinge-loss MRFs and PSL was awarded the Larry S. Davis Dissertation Award.
