Nikita Kitaev

I am a third-year PhD student at U.C. Berkeley, advised by Dan Klein. I am supported by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship.

My current research interests are Artificial Intelligence and Natural Language Processing.

I received my B.S. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science also from U.C. Berkeley. During this time, I worked on robotics research in Pieter Abbeel's group.
