David D. Lewis (email@example.com) is interested in
information retrieval, NLP, and machine learning. He recently
completed a Ph.D. in CS under Bruce Croft (UMass Amherst), and
is now an RA at the Center for Information and Language Studies
(UChicago) working on stochastic parsing, phrase clustering, and
text representations for inductive learning. He has consulted for
several firms, served on workshop program committees, and helped
with the DARPA MUC and TREC evaluations. David would like to hear
of open faculty or research positions in text-based systems.
Larry Bookman (firstname.lastname@example.org) just got his Ph.D.
in CS from Brandeis University, working under Rick Alterman and
Dave Waltz on a two-tier model of semantic memory for text
comprehension. Larry also taught for several years at
Northeastern University, and he's interested in getting back to
Boston. His research interests include text understanding,
summarization, case-based reasoning, NLP, information retrieval,
and connectionist models, as well as AI in general.
