My Ph.D. work at the University of Rochester focused on natural language understanding (NLU) in the context of dialogue, and included analysis of problem-solving dialogues using DAMSL, Dialog Act Markup in Several Layers. See the Univ. of Rochester section of my publications for more details.

At the University of Edinburgh, I continued my work on NLU and discourse analysis in the context of tutorial dialogue. See the Univ. of Edinburgh section of my publications for more details.

In 2004, I moved to USC's Institute for Creative Technologies where I have been working more generally in applied artificial intelligence. I have also had the opportunity to teach a few classes over the years including CSCI 544: Applied Natural Language Processing. Some of the course materials for 2016 and 2015 are available online.
