My focus is on the development and application of algorithms for natural language processing, machine learning, and information retrieval. My research background is in the areas of computational linguistics, natural language processing and spoken dialogue. I have developed lexical semantic ontologies for spoken dialogue systems across multiple domains, including personal assistants and health care, to convert natural language into formal representations that are actionable by a conversational assistant. I have also developed data collection and analysis techniques for information retrieval evaluation.
