Rebecca Knowles


I'm a computer science graduate student in the Center for Language and Speech Processing (CLSP) at Johns Hopkins University, where I am advised by Philipp Koehn and Mark Dredze. I'm also the contest site coordinator for the North American Computational Linguistics Olympiad (NACLO) at JHU (see our JHU NACLO website for site-specific information).
