Fusing cognitive science and AI.
After studying psycholinguistics under Steven Pinker at MIT, I went off to Japan, and along with Joichi Ito and Kaoru Hayashi, cofounded one of the first Internet software companies there. I then decided to go back to school, and ended up doing reseach at the University of Alberta in Chris Westbury's lab. I then moved to the University of Tuebingen for a postdoc in Harald Baayen's lab. Now I want to bring together everything I know about massively scalable software and human learning and cognition to make something that no one has ever seen before.
