Hi! I am Siddharth (Sid). I am a second-year Computer Science Ph.D. student at the University of Rochester advised by Aaron White. My research interests lie at the intersection of Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning. I am especially interested in extracting semantic information from linguistic input.
In May 2019, I graduated from the University of Rochester with a Masters in Computational Linguistics.
During my Masters at Rochester, I worked as a graduate researcher with Aaron Steven White at the FACTS Lab, where I worked on fine-grained temporal relation extraction. I also worked with James Allen on improving semantic parsing using statistical Word Sense Disambiguation.
