I am a researcher in the Microsoft Translator group. I like working on practical applied problems in many areas within natural language processing, especially machine translation, and have contributed to a number of open source projects. I advise Rachel Wicks and Liz Salesky and am the director of the ACL Anthology.

Here is my list of publications, some of which I’ve organized into an area-driven research narrative.

Do you have a lingering worry that maybe you missed some of the jokes in my sacrebleu poster? Never fear, I explain them all in § 4 (p. 4) of the paper that describes the poster that summarizes the paper that released the package assembled by the code.

(2022-03) Congratulations to Elizabeth on being selected as an Apple AI/ML fellow.

(2021-11) Liz presented our paper at EMNLP: Robust open-vocabulary translation from visual text representations [PDF]

(2021-06-14) After over ten years at JHU, I left to join Microsoft Translator. I retain a courtesy appointment with the computer science department and the HLTCOE.

I spent 2017–2018 working on Sockeye with the great team at Amazon Research in Berlin.
