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: Dr. Yllias Chali, Dr. Dragomir R. Radev (University of Michigan), Dr. Sajjad Zahir, Dr. Kevin Grant, Dr. Guy Lapalme (University of Montreal), and Dr. Howard Cheng.
