My research interests lie at or near the intersection of machine learning, natural language processing, and linguistics. A unifying theme of much of my work is multilinguality. Some current topics of interest are: Machine translation Neural network models for language processing Computational morphology and phonology NLP on noisy text (Twitter, Sina Weibo, etc.) Language modeling Feature induction and representation learning Unsupervised and semi-supervised learning Bayesian techniques Big data algorithms Probabilistic music models
