I recently (June 2010) graduated from Stanford with a Ph.D. in Computer
Science. My adviser at Stanford was Prof. Daphne Koller, and my work as a graduate student was a mix of natural
language processing and machine learning algorithms related to
graphical models. Post-graduation, I have been working at Facebook
on machine-learning and NLP-related problems.
