Industry workshop 10/12 - Ruth Brillman

The “careers for linguists” workshop will host our very own Ruth Brillman (PhD 2017), who is currently an engineering manager for Google Search and works right around the corner from us. She’ll join us in person for a Q&A about her path to industry.

When: Wednesday, 10/12, 2-3:30pm
Where: 32-D461 or on zoom (email me for a link)

Here is a short blurb from Ruth:

“I graduated from MIT with a PhD in Linguistics in 2017, where I specialized in syntax (primarily) and language acquisition. I’ve spent the past five years in industry, mostly working on NLP projects and building software informed by a structural understanding of language. Currently, I’m a software engineer at Google where I lead a small team focused on improving Google Search quality in lower-resource languages.”
