Summary

I am particularly interested in:

  • NLP at the sub-word level: letter-phoneme conversion, transliteration, orthography, morphology, word similarity, drug names
  • Cognates: identification, projection, applications, machine translation, bitext alignment, diachronic linguistics
  • Lexical Semantics: synonymy, polysemy, homonymy, translational equivalence, word sense disambiguation
  • Computational Cryptography: decoding unknown scripts, cipher language identification

Courses

CMPUT 331 - Computational Cryptography

Cryptography is the science of secure communications. This course is an introduction to computational methods for encrypting and deciphering messages, with an emphasis on computer implementation. Prerequisites: CMPUT 201 and CMPUT 272.
