The trendy name for my profession is “data science”, which is undoubtedly data-oriented, but not entirely science. My work combines aspects of software engineering, database (and parallel-systems) architecture and design, curiosity and expertise in the domain of the current problem, and applications of (usually statistical) machine learning models.
I live in Seattle, Washington. I am currently a Senior Scientist at inome, where I design and implement systems to apply machine-learning and NLP techniques to data-mine people records, among many information sources.
My graduate-school experience — and much of my domain expertise — is in natural language processing, speech processing, and other aspects of computational linguistics. I have industry and academic experience in speech synthesis, speech recognition, text processing, large-corpus data analysis, and other areas of NLP.
I have a 2010 PhD in Linguistics from the University of Washington, where I was a member of the Electrical Engineering SSLI lab. Since my PhD, I have worked as Director of Research at Wordnik, as a research linguist at SRI‘s STAR lab, and as a Senior Computational Linguist at Quid, a business intelligence platform.
