Personal profile

Research interests

My research concentrates on the automatic acquisition from sequences. This includes the development and application of machine learning systems on sequential data, such as natural language or music.  In this context, I am mainly concerned with grammatical inference.  Grammatical inference is the learning of grammars or structure in sequences.  This learned structure can be used within applications.  Example applcations where this structure can be used are: machine translation, music classification (in, for example, classes of emotions or composers), or question answering systems.
