Adina is a Research Scientist at Facebook AI Research in NYC (started October 2018). Previously, she earned her PhD at New York University in the Department of Linguistics, where she investigated the brain basis of syntactic and semantic processing. Her main research goal is to strengthen the connections between linguistics and cognitive science on the one hand and natural language processing and artificial intelligence on the other. She approaches this process from both directions: she brings linguistic and cognitive scientific insights about human language to bear on training, evaluating, and debiasing NLP systems, and also applies statistical methods and corpus analytic tools from NLP to uncover new quantitative, cross-linguistic facts about particular human languages.
