Maria Ryskina

I am a second-year PhD student at Language Technologies Institute of School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. I am fortunate to be advised by Prof. Taylor Berg-Kirkpatrick.
I work on various applications of unsupervised methods in natural language processing. My other interests include pragmatics, language-vision grounding, and historical document processing.

Previously, I've worked on topic modeling with Prof. Konstantin Vorontsov at Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology. I have a joint Master's degree from MIPT and Skoltech. In Fall 2015 I was a visiting student at MIT Infolab, where I worked on my Master's thesis project.
