Jordan Boyd-Graber

I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Maryland iSchool and University of Maryland Institute for Advanced Computer Studies. I am affiliated with Computer Science, the Computational Linguistics and Information Processing lab, and Language Science. Previously, I was a graduate student at Princeton with David Blei.

My research focuses on discovering hidden structure in natural language to create new applications. These applications help users sift through decades of documents, discover when individuals control the topic of a conversation, or to compete against humans in games that are based in natural language. Because data are cheap, I focus on techniques that are unsupervised or only lightly supervised, requiring little annotation or human intervention.
