Pronouns: he/him

Hi! I am Siddharth (Sid). I am a fourth-year Computer Science Ph.D. student at the University of Rochester advised by Aaron White.

My research focus is in Natural Language Understanding and Information Extraction. I work on building computational models of semantics in natural language text. In my previous work, I have worked on building models for extracting semantic information related to events – event triggers, event chronology, event duration etc. I also collaborate with Ben Van Durme and his group at Johns Hopkins University on projects related to Information Extraction.

My papers are listed on the publications page. Full list of publications can be found at Semantic Scholar/Google Scholar
