John Hewitt

I’m an undergraduate in Computer Science at the University of Pennsylvania, graduating this year.

News! I’ll be working with the AWS AI Natural Language Understanding team this summer.

I work in the lab of Chris Callison-Burch. My undergraduate research is in Natural Language Processing (NLP), focusing in machine translation, structured prediction, and settings with little training data. This work falls under the DARPA LORELEI program.

I ask questions about structured prediction tasks – like machine translation or morphological prediction – that help us come to a better understanding of where linguistic theory and external information can improve our modeling of human language.

You can find my work via my github profile.

    I’m a computer nerd and a language nerd. I like making coffee, reading research papers, and programming computers.

    I highly suggest Arch Linux for its configurability and the educational experience it provides..


    Take my school email johnhew@seas.upenn

    Or take my Apache email johnhew@apache

    Either way, I’m expecting that you are able to predict the TLD of the above emails and fill them.
