Hot Dogma, in Pittsburgh

I have recently completed my dissertation in linguistics at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL. For my day job, I am a research scientist at Motorola


My linguistic research has centered on applying formal theories of multiagent decision making to the domain of conversational agents. In my dissertation, I develop a game-theoretic model of conversational grounding, focusing on the kinds of referential communication tasks commonly used in psycholinguistics.
