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 2020 . (Previous Fall 2018, Fall 2019 ).

Discrete Structures (CS 173): (starting Fall 2008) Spring 2021 , Spring 2020 , 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 (Fall 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 still early in the term, so some details may change.

For obvious reasons, you're unlikely to find me by dropping into my office. Send me email and we'll figure out a plan.
