Jon Saad-Falcon

I'm currently completing the joint B.S./M.S. in Computer Science in the College of Computing at Georgia Tech . I'm advised by Polo Chau and Diyi Yang, working at the Polo Club of Data Science and Social and Language Technologies (SALT) lab, respectively.
I am supported by the Stamps President's Scholarship and work as a Predoctoral Young Investigator at the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence (AI2).
My research interests span across natural language processing, machine learning, information extraction, and information retrieval. I'm excited to work on projects that use NLP architectures and models in the biomedical and scientific domains.
I've had the privilege to collaborate with researchers and scientists at Stanford AI Lab, Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence (AI2), and Goldman Sachs.
