I studied electrical engineering and French at Virginia Tech from 1987 to 1992 (including a year at the Université de Technologie de Compiègne) and later (in 2001) obtained an MSc in natural language processing at the UMIST Centre for Computational Linguistics (which has subsequently been split between the School of Informatics and the School of Languages, Linguistics and Cultures at the combined University of Manchester).

I then worked at UMIST on the DUMAS project and wrote a PhD thesis about dialogue modelling and management using formal semantics (completed in 2005), and worked I worked for the National Centre for Text Mining from November 2004 to January 2006.

I then moved to the GATE team in Sheffield, where I work on natural language processing, information extraction and text analytics, GATE applications and development, and semantic web applications. I have been involved in several projects, including SEKT, LIRICS, MUSING, NeOn, CLARIN and Service-Finder.
