(at Madame Tussauds in London, 2017)


Welcome to my web site! I am a postdoctoral associate at Department of Computer Science, Stony Brook University. Previously, I was an assistant professor in Natural Language Processing lab at Tohoku University, Japan (until Apr. 2020). My research interest is in natural language processing, especially in natural language understanding, commonsense inference, logical inference and discourse processing.

My CV is here.
