I have been working in language and speech technology for about 15 years now. My main research areas are speech summarization, linguistic pragmatics, conversational communication, discourse segmentation, information extraction, dialogue systems, and human-computer interfaces. My dissertation involved the development of algorithms for automatically summarizing communicative activities in multi-party face-to-face conversations.
