David Burkett

I'm a postdoctoral researcher in Computer Science at the University of California, Berkeley. I work in the Natural Language Processing Group with Professor Dan Klein. I've also done some work in game AI and in this area am probably best known for my work on the Overmind, an agent for playing StarCraft.

I am interested in all sorts of things involving language, computers, and statistics, but my main interest is in how different languages relate to each other, both historically and linguistically. So far I've mostly been focused on work related to syntactic relationships between different languages. This means I've done some syntactic machine translation, but the majority of my work has been related to bilingual parsing.
