Education

  • Ph.D., Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Sept. 1988
  • M.S., Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Sept. 1985
  • B.A., Linguistics, Yale University, May 1982

Teaching Statement

I teach CS 173 (Discrete Structures) and CS 440 (Artificial Intelligence).

Course Development

  • CS 173 (Discrete Structures), wrote new textbook, built on-line activities, implemented on-line homework submission

Research Statement

My current research focuses on techniques for automatically learning word boundaries, and eventually related phonological and morphological information, from transcribed speech. I have previously worked on image understanding and ubiquitous computing. I have also developed programming language support for both computational language and images understanding research.
