I am a second-year student in the Computer Science PhD program at Cornell University / Cornell Tech, based in New York City. I completed a BS in Computer Science & Engineering with Honors at Ohio State University in May 2016.
My work is in natural language processing. I am specifically interested in semantics and pragmatics, e.g.:
- using context to understand and disambiguate language use
- language grounding
A Corpus of Natural Language for Visual Reasoning

We introduce a new visual reasoning language dataset (NLVR), describe the method for collecting the data, provide linguistic analysis of the collected data, and show the dataset presents a new challenge for research in visual language grounding.
Visual Reasoning with Natural Language
Stephanie Zhou*, Alane Suhr*, and Yoav Artzi. To appear in AAAI Fall Symposium on Natural Communication for Human-Robot Collaboration, 2017.
Extended abstract. *Authors contributed equally.
We summarize our collection of the NLVR corpus and describe an ongoing process of collecting a similar dataset with real photographs.
