Previously, I was a Research Officer in Text Analytics at National Research Council Canada, and Researcher in the Natural Language Processing group at Microsoft Research. Before that, I was a PhD student at University of Alberta.

I work in Natural Language Processing and Machine Translation. I'm interested in creating learning algorithms that discover the underlying structures behind words and sentences. I also work on putting those structures to use in applications like machine translation and information extraction.

I'm a proud member of the Association for Computational Linguistics, currently serving as chair of the North American chapter. You can find nearly everything I've done at the ACL Anthology.
