Hi there! I'm Lane. I'm a Ph.D. student at the University of Rochester. I study artificial intelligence with Len Schubert; I focus on learning structured representations of event patterns—what we call schemas—from natural language texts, especially children's stories.

I also like comedy, bouldering, and making algorithmic art. Maybe one day robots will be better than me at all of that stuff.

Feel free to shoot me an email!
