Third-year PhD student Parker Riley (supervised by Professor Daniel Gildea) was awarded the Arts, Sciences and Engineering Donald M. and Janet C. Barnard Fellowship in recognition of his strong research record, as well as his clear commitment to mentoring, outreach, and service to the department and field. Parker Riley is working on the problem of learning translation models between languages for which no parallel text (translated document pairs) are available. His work has already resulted in one journal article in the journal Computational Linguistics, one first-author paper in the proceedings of the Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL), and another paper currently under review for ACL.
