I'm an alumnus of the Language Technologies Institute, School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. While at CMU, I worked with Eric Nyberg on parsing algorithms and various aspects of Knowledge-Based Machine Translation.
During '93--'97, I worked on computer speech in the ``Sphinx'' Speech Group. Prior to that ('89--'93), I worked on computer speech R & D at BBN Labs (now part of Verizon).
I presented High-Performance Unification Parsing at 10:00 AM, Monday April 29th, in Wean Hall 4623. Happily, my committee liked and approved the work (i.e. I passed).
I've put some recent papers on the web for interested parties. I'll be putting more up as time permits.
I also have here the obligatory Resume/C.V.
Even though I work on Computational Linguistics, I have an Erdös number of 5. This is slightly larger (further away) than average, for those with a finite Erdös number.
