Orest Xherija (Ορέστ Τζερίγια)
NLP researcher at The University of Chicago


I am a final year Ph.D. student in the Department of Linguistics of The University of Chicago. I work in Natural Language Processing (NLP) and I am interested in applying techniques from machine learning to better understand meaning phenomena at scale. I completed my undergraduate degree in Mathematics at The University of Chicago.

Areas of interest

  • natural language understanding (esp. inference)
  • deep learning for fine-grained text classification
  • representation learning for textual data
