I recently completed a PhD in Computer Science at the University of Chicago.
My research interests are in text mining, natural language processing, and machine learning applications.
My disseration is titled "Natural Language Processing for Named Entities with Word-internal Information", and my advisor was John Goldsmith.
I now work at LexisNexis Risk Solutions in Chicago.
