Slav Petrov

Slav Petrov I am a researcher at Google in New York leading a team that works on problems at the intersection of natural language processing and machine learning. I am particularly interested in multilingual syntactic analysis and its applications to machine translation and information extraction. Here is a video of a recent talk about my work, which has been recognized with best paper awards at NAACL 2012 and ACL 2011. I also teach Statistical Natural Language Processing at New York University.

I completed my PhD at UC Berkeley in 2009, where I worked with Dan Klein. My Master's degree is from the Free University of Berlin, where our team won the RoboCup world championship in robotic soccer. I also spent a year as an exchange student at Duke University.

I grew up in Berlin, Germany, but I am originally from Sofia, Bulgaria. I therefore consider myself a Berliner from Bulgaria. Whenever Bulgaria plays Germany in soccer, I support Bulgaria.
