- Research Interests
- My research interests are in natural language processing, with particular focus on text summarization and discourse-level structuring of information. I investigate ways in which clinical texts (these include scientific articles, medical textbooks, and patient notes) and health consumer texts (health news stories, educational health documents, and peer-patient forum posts) can be processed automatically to enhance access to relevant information for physicians, health researchers, and health consumers alike.
