What is NLP?
  • Natural Language Processing (NLP) is an interdisciplinary field that uses computational methods:
    • to investigate the properties of human language and model the cognitive mechanisms underlying the understanding and production of language
    • to develop novel practical applications involving the intelligent processing of human language by computer

Research Interests
  • Natural Language Processing
  • Nanoinformatics & NanoNLP
  • Biomedical and Clinical NLP

Current Research Projects
extract and synthesis knowledge and trends in nanotechnology from the literature
identify implicit relations across scientific literature
automatically determine the correcting meaning of ambiguous words
quantify the degree in which two terms are related
quantify the degree in which two terms are associated

Previous Research Projects
