About Me

I am a director of AI research at Dataminr. Dataminr's clients are the first to know about high-impact events and emerging risks so they can mitigate and manage crises more effectively. I lead a team of data scientists who work on building and evaluating state-of-the-art AI capabilities to support Dataminr's products.

Before joining Dataminr, I worked as a managing senior research scientist in the Technology group as part of the AI Labs at Educational Testing Service. There I led a group of 20 research engineers who were focused on developing and deploying robust, well-documented, scalable NLP prototypes in the educational application domain.

Before I joined ETS, I worked at the University of Stuttgart on SFB-732. There I used natural language generation techniques to improve the output of a German surface realization system.

I received my PhD from Dublin City University in 2004. My thesis focused on automatically acquiring treebank-based LFG parsing resources. After my PhD, I also worked as a postdoctoral researcher at DCU mainly on statistical generation for Lexical Functional Grammar using PCFGs.

In general, I am interested in developing modern, robust, NLP applications that have meaningful, positive, impacts on people's lives.
