I am happy to announce that I've successfully defended my dissertation titled "Representation Learning and Learning from Limited Labeled Data for Community Question Answering" on April 12! I would like to sincerely thank Iryna Gurevych for mentoring me over the past five years, and for the great opportunities she gave me at UKP Lab. I would also like to thank Jonathan Berant and Goran Glavaš for reviewing my thesis and for the very insightful discussion we had.
As of May 1st, I will start a new position as Applied Scientist NLP/IR at Amazon in Berlin. I am particularly thrilled to be conducting research with direct practical relevance and for the benefit of many customers. Through the close connection between research and real-world applications, I look forward to continuing to contribute to our terrific research community.
