Research Interests

My research interests include computational linguistics, computer vision, and programming language tools to support language and vision research. Right now, I'm working on unsupervised algorithms that learn word boundaries from transcribed speech.


Check out my publications and the Schwa 1.0 release!

Some old research projects: programming support for computer vision (envision), skin detector, fast order statistic filter
