Research





What am I working on now?

Currently I'm putting together notes for the NLP class I am teaching this Fall. I plan to make the notes and code publicly available by December 2018.



Summer 2018

Finished my book on machine learning with R!! More information about the book and associated code can be found on my blog



Summer 2017

Created a web interface (using Django) for a new Question Generation system I developed that is very much in beta.

PhD Research

My PhD research focused on automatically generating questions from text for educational purposes. Over a span of about 3 years I created four distinct question generator systems, exploring the merits of different approaches. I was fortunate to get my results published in some exciting conferences. Here's a list in chronological order:



  • 2014 ACL Association for Computational Linguistics, Baltimore Maryland.
  • 2014 ITS Intelligent Tutoring Systems, Honolulu Hawaii.
  • 2015 AIED Artificial Intelligence in Education, Madrid Spain.
  • 2016 INLG International Conference on Natural Language Generation, Edinburgh Scotland.
  • 2016 ITS Intelligent Tutoring Systems, Zagreb Croatia.
  • 2017 CICLing International Conference on Computational Linguistics, Budapest Hungary.

As a seasoned researcher at ACL once told me:

Become a computer science researcher and you will travel the world!
