Research, Development & Publications

The main focus of my work at the University of Utah was in coreference resolution. Specifically, in seeking out new knowledge-rich approaches (via the web or large corpora) and mining domain specific knowledge from large datasets.

Current software projects

Reconcile - An automatic coreference resolution testbed based work by Soon et al. and Ng & Cardie. This software package is still being developed, but a stable release is available for free download, source included, from the website above.
