I just joined Philips Research in New York as a Research Scientist where I will be working on problems related to Clinical Question Answering Systems.
Before joining Philips, I was a Post Doctoral Fellow at the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, University of Lethbridge, Canada.
I obtained my PhD. in May, 2013 in Computer Science (with a focus in Computational Linguistics, Natural Language Processing, and Machine Learning) at the University of Lethbridge.
My PhD. dissertation was entitled "Complex Question Answering: Minimizing the Gaps and Beyond". My doctoral committee members were Professor Dr. Yllias Chali, Professor Dr. Dragomir R. Radev (University of Michigan), Professor Dr. Sajjad Zahir, Associate Professor Dr. Kevin Grant, Professor Dr. Guy Lapalme (University of Montreal), and Associate Professor Dr. Howard Cheng.
