Research Interests

My research interests are in natural language processing (NLP) and information processing and retrieval (IR). I have been doing work in the following areas:

  • Computational Linguistics: robust text processing, information extraction, fast parsing, semantic analysis and discourse processing.
  • Information Retrieval: automated indexing, linguistic indexing, topic detection and tracking, spoken language filtering and retrieval, cross-lingual retrieval, interactive IR.
  • Automated Summarization: automated abstracting, multi-document summarization.
  • Open-Domain Question-Answering: automated question-answering from unstructured data.
  • Interactive Dialogue Systems: dialogue modeling, spoken-language dialogues, human-machine conversation, semantics of automated dialogue, automated call centers.
  • Knowledge Acquisition: corpus analysis, text mining, machine learning.
  • Logic Programming: Logic grammars, reversible grammars.
  • Artificial Intelligence: meaning representation.
  • Computational sociolinguistics: leadership, influence and social dynamics in interaction, social media, and online games.
