Research Interests

My research deals with the analysis of spontaneous language samples. I work with written language mostly, but some of my work also deals with transcriptions of spoken language. My main research projects can be categorized along these lines:

  • Creative writing analysis (story understanding)
  • Computational Linguistics for the analysis of Code-Switched data
  • Detection of extremely negative text in social media
  • Information extraction from social media
  • Clinical NLP, the use of NLP in language assessment for a clinical purpose (diagnose, monitor conditions affecting language patterns)
