Hi, I'm Ralph.


I'm a principal research scientist who's passionate about machine learning, natural language processing, statistics, and probability theory. Research-wise, I've driven the creative vision and technical direction for my 10+ first-author publications, winning a best paper award at ACL 2023. Engineering-wise, I've led and implemented language technology systems serving 20 million+ queries per day, receiving a companywide innovation award at Comcast.

I've served as a reviewer for AAAI, AACL-IJCNLP, ACL, COLM, EACL, EMNLP Industry, and NAACL, as well as an area chair for ACL. My curriculum vitae has more details.
