I am an assistant professor in the Library and Information Science Department at Rutgers University and the co-director of the newly funded Laboratory for Applied Language Technologies and Society. I am also member of the graduate faculty in the Computer Science Department, and an affiliated faculty of The Center for Media Studies. I received my PhD in Computer Science from Columbia University in 2006. Before coming to Rutgers I was a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Institute for Advanced Computer Studies at University of Maryland.
My research focuses on Natural Language Processing (computational models for language understanding and learning), and applications in digital libraries, medical informatics and empirical investigations in the area of language and behaviour. My research unifies two separate but central themes in human language technologies: computational formalisms to express language phenomena and induction of knowledge from data.
