Spring 2015 Schedule

I'm not teaching Spring 2015. Instead, I'll be focusing on my "other" job as Associate Provost. I may be in my office in SC 292 or in my office in Parrish Hall. Either way, if you'd like to meet with me, the best thing to do is send me an email, give me a call, or try to track me down in one of my two offices.


My research area is in the area of computational linguistics, or natural language processing. I have focused my work in two major areas: computational morphology and semantic disambiguation. In particular, I have spent a lot of time looking at how these problems are the same/different across different languages.

For my doctoral thesis, I developed a multilingual, minimally supervised morphological analyzer for Spanish, Portuguese, French, Catalan, Occitan, Italian, Romanian, Latin, English, German, Dutch, Danish, Norwegian, Swedish, Icelandic, Czech, Polish, Russian, Irish, Welsh, Greek, Hindi, Sanskrit, Estonian, Finnish, Turkish, Uzbek, Tamil, Basque, Tagalog, Swahili, and Klingon.

I have also published in areas outside of natural language processing:
