OK, Who *really* am I?

I am a *beep*-th-year graduate student in CLSP, working with Prof. Fred Jelinek on language modeling for automatic speech recognition (try mac or pc) and/or statistical machine translation (try google or babel fish). I have also worked on acoustic modeling and information retrieval briefly. In general, I am interested in statistical modeling of human intelligence as exemplified in the use of language and speech.
