My past research was focused in two areas:
My PhD research focused on the semantics of natural languages, with the overall goal of enriching the amount of detail that occurs in a computer generated story.
My MSc research combined a Natural Language Generation system with a Speech Systhesis system to produce speech that sounded more human.
I am currently interested in the following topics:
The enrichment of semantic content generated for storytelling.
Semantic representations suitable for Natural Language Processing.
Machine Learning in NLP.
Improvements to Speech Synthesis technologies.
I have been involved with the following research groups at Queen's University:
