Alane Suhr

Assistant Professor

Biography

I am currently a Young Investigator at AI2 on the Mosaic team (led by Yejin Choi), based in Seattle, WA. In July 2023, I will join UC Berkeley EECS as an Assistant Professor.

In 2022, I received my PhD in Computer Science at Cornell University, based at Cornell Tech in New York, NY, and advised by Yoav Artzi. In 2016, I graduated from Ohio State University with a BS in Computer Science and Engineering and a minor in Linguistics.

My research spans natural language processing, machine learning, and computer vision. I build systems that use language to interact with people, e.g., in collaborative interactions (like CerealBar). I design models and datasets that address and represent problems in language grounding (e.g., NLVR). I also develop learning algorithms for systems that learn language through interaction.
