Research

My background is in Natural Language Processing / Computational Linguistics. The long-term mission of my research is to develop systems that can accurately interpret natural language in a multimodal environment and in linguistic discourse.

My research interests touch on syntactic and semantic parsing, grammar formalisms, lexical and computational semantics, knowledge representation, and machine learning.

In my dissertation, I use synchronous graph grammars to translate sentences into graph-based representations of their meaning and developed efficient algorithms for grammar induction and parsing.
