I am a Research Associate at University of Colorado's Center for Language and Education Research and a Visiting Professor at KULeuven's Language Intelligence & Information Retrieval research group. I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science and Cognitive Science from the University of Colorado in 2007, and worked as a postdoctoral researcher at University of Colorado's Center for Language and Education Research, Stanford University's Natural Language Processing group, Johns Hopkins University's Human Language Technology Center of Excellence, and at Katholieke Universiteit Leuven's Language Intelligence & Information Retrieval group.
My research interests include topics in machine learning, natural language processing and information retrieval: constructing timelines from unstructured text, characterizing quality in educational webpages, identifying science misconceptions in student esssays, learning feature-based models for literature search, and building information extraction models for clinical and biomedical texts. See my Publications page for more details on my research.
