Scott McClure, Ph.D. -- Research Information

I am a speech scientist at Nuance Communications, Inc., in Burlington, Massachusetts, where I work on NLP and formatting in healthcare documentation.

I am married and live with two ex-feral cats in the East Arlington neighborhood of Arlington, Massachusetts.

In May of 2011 I earned my Ph.D. in linguistics from Yale University. My advisors were Gaja Jarosz and Stephen Anderson. The tile of my dissertation was A system for inducing the phonology and inflectional morphology of a natural language.

My graduate research focused on morphology, phonology, and machine learning. I have also worked as a research assistant in laboratory phonology at Haskins Laboratories. I'm slowly assembling a list of links to publications to include on this page.
