New advisees

I am currently looking for students to form an interdisciplinary computational linguistics group!

Georgetown has a strong community of computational linguistics researchers. If you're not yet at Georgetown, consider applying in Linguistics or Computer Science.
→ Ph.D. application deadlines: Dec. 15 for Linguistics, Jan. 15 for CS.

If you're already a Georgetown student, come talk to me about your research interests and ideas!
