Luke Zettlemoyer

My current research is in the intersections of natural language processing, machine learning, and decision making under uncertainty. I am particularly interested in algorithms for recovering and making use of representations of the meaning of natural language text.

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Washington. Previously, I did postdoctoral research at the University of Edinburgh and was a Ph.D. student at MIT.
