I finished my PhD in Computer
at the University of
Maryland, College Park
in May 2010. My PhD advisor was Bonnie Dorr
. I am
currently a post-doctoral researcher and adjunct faculty at CUNY,
Queens College in the BLENDER
, working on Information Extraction, as well as on Machine
Translation and Speech Recognition in the GALE program.
My current research focuses on information extraction, statistical
machine translation, disfluency detection in conversation speech and
machine translation evaluation.
I did my Master's work at Washington
University in St. Louis
in the department
of Computer Science
with Michael Brent
working on the unsupervised learning of morphology.
My research interests are in Computational Linguistics, Statistical
Machine Translation, Information Extraction, Machine Learning,
Unsupervised and Minimally Supervised Learning, Evaluation Metrics for
Natural Language Processing, and Artificial Intelligence.
