Work Experience
2006-2010: Adjunct Lecturer, Georgetown University Department of Linguistics
I have taught four graduate courses: “Tone and Intonation” (Spring 2006), “Gesture and Language” (Spring 2007),
“Multimodal Dialogue Systems” (Fall 2008, with Linda Van Guilder), and “Computational Corpus Linguistics (Fall
2010, with Linda Van Guilder).
2007-2009: Adjunct Lecturer, George Mason University Department of Linguistics
I have taught an introductory graduate course in Descriptive Linguistics (Fall 2007, Spring 2009).
1997-present: Principal Artificial Intelligence Engineer, The MITRE Corporation, McLean VA
I am currently manager of a department of 50 engineers working in various aspects of artificial intelligence. Prior to
that, I directed research and development in computational linguistics, and managed a group of twenty computational
linguists. I’ve served as PI or co-PI on multiple research projects with budgets totaling several million dollars. I’m
currently directing research in technology for annotating and analyzing nonverbal behavior across cultures. My most
recent research project investigated multi-modal human-computer dialogue systems, with a focus on intonation, gaze
and gesture. I also support numerous government agencies with language technology needs.
1993-1997: Lead Engineer, Hughes Information Technology Systems, Reston VA
I conducted research, development, and implementation of a variety of software, ranging from efficient inexact string
searches of large text repositories, to improvements of neural-network optical character recognition.
1991-1993: Director of Training and Support, Edunetics Corporation, Arlington VA
I directed the training and technical support department for an educational software company. I conducted classroom
training sessions for high school teachers nationwide.
1990-1991: Software Engineer, Metron Corporation, Reston VA
I developed software for automatic optical pattern recognition.
1990: Instructor, National Learning Center, Washington DC
I taught math to at-risk middle-school DC public school students.
1987-1989: Director of Academic Computing, Proctor Academy, Andover NH
I taught college-level computer science, and managed an academic computer center.
1985-1987: Instructor, Outward Bound, Rockland ME
6
I led wilderness rehabilitation courses for at-risk youth.
1984-1985: Software Engineer, Auto-trol Corporation, Denver CO
I developed peripheral driver software for a computer-aided-design system manufacturer.
