Research Interests

My Research interests falls into the intersection of Information Retrieval, Information Extraction, and Machine Learning, centering at towards Information Retrieval. Specifically my current goal is to utilize knowledge base (Freebase, DBpedia, NELL, etc.) to improve search engine’s user experience.

I am also generally interested in topics like internet advertising (which is hard to work on outside of search engine company), probabilistic graphic models (that killed lots of my Sunday afternoons), and word embeddings via deep learning (as a complementary, bottom-up text understanding approach to knowledge base).
