My research brings together natural language processing (NLP), privacy, and artificial intelligence.
I collaborate with researchers outside of computer science to apply NLP to a variety of problems. Two recent examples of this are detecting historical trends in building preservation priorities and assessing the readability of text in biomedical domains.
A line of research that I call "the metalanguage project" is another part of my continuing work. This is an effort to automatically identify instances of metalanguage (i.e., statements about language use or production) in text and extract from them direct, precise information about artifacts of communication.
I can provide a more comprehensive research statement upon request. You may also browse my publications.
