Stanford University & UW-Madison
I spent six years working with Christopher Ré at Stanford University and
the University of Wisconsin-Madison. For a summary of our work, see my research statement
and PhD dissertation.
With indispensable help from many collaborators, my PhD thesis produced DeepDive, a trained system for automatic knowledge base construction. DeepDive has been used
to achieve human-level quality in a range of applications, such as paleontology, anti-human trafficking, and genomics etc. DeepDive is
being commercialized as Lattice.
I would like to thank my advisor, Chris. I owe Chris my career as a researcher. Since the day I first met
Chris and told him about my dream, he has done everything he could, as a scientist, an educator, and a friend to help me.
