Hello! I'm a phd student working on computational linguistics and machine learning with Michael Gasser. I've been known to write software while sitting on a big colorful ball.
My main project these days is tools for machine translation for under-resourced languages. Particularly, I'm working on techniques to help the translation system make better word choices, both through gathering more text and through learning from the text that we have available. I also occasionally contribute to NLTK.
Since Fall 2014, I've joined Google Translate!
