I just joined Philips Research in New York as a Research Scientist where I will be working on problems related to Clinical Natural Language Processing.
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.
