I was born in Lawrence, Kansas, in 1966, and grew up in
Memphis, Tennessee. I studied philosophy and linguistics at Princeton
University, and then received my Ph.D. in linguistics in 1992 from the
University of Massachusetts at Amherst. My dissertation entitled Situation
Theory and the Semantics of
Propositional Expressions was directed by Barbara Partee.
After working for a year in a now-defunct NLP
project at MCC in Austin, Texas, I came to Georgetown. I am married to
Wen-Ying Sylvia Chou. We live in Arlington, VA and have two children,
Noah Weihan and Benjamin Weiming. The picture is from quite a few years ago.
