Welcome to the MURGe-Lab!

Our MURGe-Lab (Multimodal Understanding, Reasoning, and Generation for Language Lab; pronounced as "merge-lab") has research interests in statistical natural language processing and machine learning, with a focus on multimodal, grounded, and embodied semantics (i.e., language with vision and speech, for robotics), human-like language generation and Q&A/dialogue, and interpretable and structured deep learning. We are a group of PhD, MS, BS, and visiting students who work with Prof. Mohit Bansal and collaborators in the Computer Science department (lab located in Brooks Building FB-241C) at the University of North Carolina (UNC) Chapel Hill. We are also a part of the bigger UNC-NLP Group!
