Elliot Schumacher

Currently I am a Machine Learning Researcher at Curai.

In Fall 2022, I defended my Ph.D. from Center for Language and Speech Processing at Johns Hopkins University, working with Mark Dredze, Jim Mayfield, and others on Natural Language Processing and Information Extraction.

In Fall 2020, I interned with the Subjective NLP group at Amazon Search in Barcelona, Spain, as an Applied Scientist Intern.

I received my masters from the Language Technologies Institute in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. My research focused on the DSCoVAR project with Maxine Eskenazi, Kevyn Collins-Thompson and others. This included building a measure that ranks the difficulty of sentences for first-language readers using crowdsourced judgments (see publications below for more details).

Before attending CMU, I graduated from Ohio State University with a degree in both Computer Science and Linguistics. Additionally, I worked as a software developer for several years (as a student intern and later full-time).
