I have been a Research Staff Member at the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center since 1982. I came here one year after getting my Ph.D. in computer science from MIT.
I currently lead the semantic modeling of unstructured text in the ADAMS project. Our goal is to discover insider threats.
I have also managed the Medical Text and Image Analysis group. The team had a long-term collaboration with the Mayo Clinic, worked with the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and was involved with academic research.
Along with Eric Brown, I developed an architecture and system to support real-time speech applications, such as data broadcast and meeting mining. Some of my other work includes question-answering, video indexing and searching.
I hold multiple patents, several in the areas of multimedia search technologies and speech technology. I have published extensively in different areas of computer science.
I received my M.S. in electrical engineering at MIT and my B.S. in mathematics from the Technical University of Vienna, Austria.
