I am a post-doc in the Department of Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Washington, working with Prof. Luke Zettlemoyer. Previously, I completed my BSc and MSc at Technion – Israel Institute of Technology with the guidance of Prof. Shaul Markovitch, and my PhD at Bar-Ilan University with the supervision of Prof. Ido Dagan and Dr. Yoav Goldberg.

I am interested in realizing high-level semantic applications such as question answering and summarization to help people cope with information overload. At the heart of these applications are challenges in textual entailment and semantic similarity, which form the core of my current research. I am also interested in the current advances in deep learning and how they can facilitate semantic applications.

I love teaching, and enjoy the challenge of communicating complex concepts clearly and concisely.

I am happily married to Yael =]
