I am currently a post-doctoral researcher at RIKEN Center for Advanced Intelligence Project (AIP), Japan. I am also a visiting researcher at Nakayama Laboratory at the University of Tokyo.
Previously, I received my PhD at the University of Tokyo.
My complete CV (PDF) can be found here.


Research Interest

I work in the area of natural language processing and computational linguistics. I am interested in uncovering structure of text data in a data-driven manner. Currently, I am focusing on discourse parsing and knowledge acquisition for scientific papers.
