I'm a third year graduate student in Linguistics at Stanford
University. My research interests focus on the intersection of
linguistics, computer science and cognitive science. Lets get the
basics out of the way.
How many languages do you speak
I STUDY three languages, English, Japanse and Spanish.
Where are you from?
I'm a lifelong west coaster. I was born and reared in the beautiful Seattle, Washington. I've lived for 4 years in sunny and sureal Claremont, California. Now I've settled in Stanford, California, a nice compromise between the two.
What do you do?
Mostly I read. Sometimes I write code. Broadly I study and theoretically describe human language behavior. I then translate the theoretical descriptions into computer systems with the goal of replicating different components of human language ability.
Again I read. I'm a voratious informivore. I love to run, play ultimate frisbee and hike too. Call me old fasioned but I enjoy listening to live classical music and attending lectures. Give me time off and I'll be traveling. I'm a geek and proud of it.
