Mike Lewis

Research Scientist

I am a Research Scientist at Facebook AI Research in Menlo Park working on natural language processing. Previously I was a postdoc at the University of Washington, working with Luke Zettlemoyer on search based structured prediction. I completed my PhD at the University of Edinburgh (advised by Mark Steedman) based on combining distributional and logical approaches to semantics. I have a Masters degree from the University of Oxford, and won a Best Paper award at EMNLP 2016.
