Hey there! I'm Victor.

I am a PhD student in the Natural Language Processing group at the University of Washington. My advisor is Luke Zettlemoyer. My research interests are in learning language understanding through interactions. If you are looking to get in touch, please send me an email. Alternatively, you can find me on LinkedIn or Twitter.

Previously, I worked as research scientist at Salesforce Research (formerly MetaMind). I have a Master's degree in computer science from Stanford, where I worked on knowledge base population at the Stanford NLP Group. My advisor at Stanford was Chris Manning. I completed my undergraduate studies in the Electrical and Computer Engineering department at the University of Toronto, where I worked on problems ranging from line outage detection in smart grids to FPGA compilation. My advisor at the University of Toronto was Zeb Tate.

Outside of research, I enjoy hiking, reading, and cooking. I was a trombonist for more than 10 years, most recently with the University of Toronto Skule Stage Band. I am also an amateur photographer.
