My research focuses on applications of natural language processing and speech signal processing in the medical domain, particularly for identifying linguistic markers of neurological disorders such as autism and dementia. I'm also interested in word alignment, language modeling, and applications of NLP for education and alternative communication technologies. Before coming to RIT, I was a postdoc at the University of Rochester, and before getting my PhD, I worked for several years at Nuance (then ScanSoft) in the language modeling group.
