Applied Research Interests

My interests lie in the application of computational linguistics to real world problems, especially search (web and commerce).    I am particularly interested in how to combine textual and structured data to provide a more accurate linguistic analysis and how to combine language-specific knowledge with general algorithms to provide solutions across languages and language types.

I trained in linguistics at Stanford and worked as a researcher and research manager in PARC's Natural Language Theory and Technology group.   I then moved into applied research in Microsoft's Bing search team.  I was a product manager and an engineering manager in the Search Science applied research team at eBay, focusing on eCommerce search across the eBay sites.  Currently I am at A9 focusing on natural language processing, particularly for query understanding.
