Hi! I’m Venkat. I’m a PhD student in Linguistics at the University of Texas at Austin, specializing in Computational Linguistics. I am currently working on Linguistic Intergroup Bias and Affective Polarization with Assistant Professor Jessy Li and Professor David Beaver.
Can we use computational techniques and models to inform theory in semantics and pragmatics ? I think the answer is yes.
I’m primarily interested in various topics in computational semantics and pragmatics, with secondary interests in philosophy of language and compuational social science.
