Thanks for stopping by my website!

I am a 3rd-year PhD student in Computer Science at Yale University advised by Dragomir Radev. I am a member of LILY lab. I work in the area of Natural Language Processing. More specifically, my current research interest is to design and build natural language interfaces to relational databases including automatically converting users' questions to corresponding SQL queries for arbitrary database schemas.

Please check out our Semantic Parsing/Text-to-SQL Challenge Series:

  1. Spider: Yale Complex and Cross-Domain Semantic Parsing and Text-to-SQL Challenge (EMNLP 2018)
  2. SParC: Yale & Salesforce Semantic Parsing and Text-to-SQL in Context Challenge (ACL 2019)
  3. CoSQL: Yale & Salesforce Conversational Semantic Parsing and Text-to-SQL Challenge (EMNLP 2019)

Before coming to Yale, I completed my master's at Columbia University, where I worked on the BeST project for TAC KBP 2016 with Owen Rambow and Kathleen McKeown. Even before that, I was an undergraduate at the University of Utah.
