In the past I have worked on Problem Solving Algorithms (Depth First Search, Breadth First Search, A*, etc.), Neural Networks, Speech and Pattern Recognition, Genetic Algorithms and Word Sense Disambiguation. My current research focus is Named Entity Recognition/Disambiguation (NERD) and Entity Linking. I also actually worked on Cyber Security for a governmental institution for about 7 years.
Current focus of my academic research involves Knowledge Representation and Natural Language Understanding within the framework of Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Science. I'm interested in both the fundamental (computational, psychological, and linguistic) and applied aspects of these topics.
I am also deeply interested in Free/Libre/Open Source Software Security, Deep Learning, Computational Theory of Mind, Data Mining and Big Data.
