I have co-authored a book called 'Learn Prolog Now!'. It has an online version.
Before moving to Union I was a postdoc in the ArticuLab at Northwestern University. And before that I did a joint PhD at the Department of Computational Linguistics at Saarland University in Saarbrücken, Germany and at Loria in Nancy, France.
My research interests are in:
- natural language generation for interactive systems that are situated in physical or virtual environments
- generation of stories from data that combine text and visualizations
- computing education, in particular for students from non-computing majors
In fall 2020, I am teaching one of our introductory courses, Taming Big Data: Introduction to Computer Science (CSC 103), and I am co-teaching an online Minerva course called A Human's Guide to Artificial Intelligence with faculty from the mechanical engineering, philosphy, sociology, and English departments. In winter 2021, I am co-teaching Interactive Fiction Workshop with Shena McAuliffe (CSC 084/EGL 284). And in spring 2021, I am teaching the Capstone Seminar (CSC 497).
