Hi! I’m Venkat. I’m a PhD student in Linguistics at the University of Texas at Austin, specializing in Computational Linguistics.

I received my MS in Computational Linguistics from the University of Rochester, where I worked in the Formal and Computational Semantics Lab under Assistant Professor Aaron Steven White.

research interests

Can we use computational techniques and models to inform theory in semantics and pragmatics ? I think the answer is yes.

I’m interested in various topics in semantics and pragmatics — genericity, scalar implicatures, bias, things people do with language, and many more.

Check out my papers and talks to learn more about my work. Code and steps to reproduce the experiments in my research can be found on GitHub.
