Margaret M. Fleck

I'm a Research Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign .

Office: 3214 SC
Phone: 265-6838 (rings so rarely I have trouble recognizing what the noise is) (much better ideal)

Research Interests

My research interests include computational linguistics, computer vision, and programming language tools to support language and vision research. Right now, I'm working on unsupervised algorithms that learn word boundaries from transcribed speech.


Check out my publications and the Schwa 1.0 release!

Some old research projects: programming support for computer vision (envision), skin detector, fast order statistic filter


Discrete math textbook: Building Blocks, now with self-study problems.

Artificial Intelligence (CS 440): Fall 2019 page. (Previous Fall 2018)

Discrete Structures (CS 173): Spring 2020 page, pages for older terms can be found via the CS 173 Permanent Page

Intro to Theory of Computation (CS 273) (Spring 2006 to Spring 2008)

Schedule (Spring 2020)

In the following table, colored items happen every week or every two weeks. Uncolored items happen only some weeks. Orange times towards the end of the day mostly involve transporting children, so I may be able to free these times with advance notice.

It's early in the term, so this may shift as additional meetings are scheduled.
