  • Prospective students: The deadline for the next year is in December (e.g. for September 2023 or January 2024, the deadline was December 2022). Please apply directly to the department. Note that this is a very competitive program. Please consult the department website for questions about admissions. I can no longer answer individual emails about admissions. Please don't email me to tell me you are applying, or have applied, or to send me your CV or application documents.

  • Prospective interns: I don't currently offer internship positions.

  • Consulting: I don't have the capacity for consulting work right now. If you are certain I'd be the top person for the job, feel free to email me. Otherwise I'd probably say no.

  • General questions about NLP: Unless you are my student / collaborator or you're contacting me to ask about my research / teaching, please don't email me with general questions about NLP. Check my blog to see if I've already answered your question.
