Peace and the mercy of God, and His blessings be upon you.

My interests are in the foundations of computational linguistics, mathematics, and algorithm design.

I few years ago I completed my DPhil at the University of Sussex in the NLCL group under the supervision of David Weir. My thesis, Context-theoretic Semantics for Natural Language is about finding a general framework for representing meaning and syntax in terms of vector spaces, based on the idea that the meaning of a string can be determined by the contexts it occurs in. Formalising this idea mathematically leads us to a model in which the meaning of a string is represented as an element of a lattice-ordered algebra.

I'm also interested in Scrabble.
