Slav Petrov

Slav Petrov I am a researcher at Google leading globally distributed teams that conduct natural language processing and machine learning research with applications to question answering, machine translation and information extraction. We recently released SyntaxNet/Parsey McParseface and his Cousins. Here is a high-level talk about my work in general. I also teach Statistical Natural Language Processing at New York University. I completed my PhD at UC Berkeley, where I worked with Dan Klein. Here is a vaguely current curriculum vitae.

I grew up in Berlin, Germany, but I am originally from Sofia, Bulgaria. I therefore consider myself a Berliner from Bulgaria. Whenever Bulgaria plays Germany in soccer, I support Bulgaria.

Some awards I have received:
