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.

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