Glen Coppersmith

Senior Research Scientist; Assistant Research Scientist, Electrical and Computer Engineering.Streaming algorithms, graph based methods.

I am an assistant research professor of computer science and a research scientist at the Human Language Technology Center of Excellence (HLTCOE). I am also affiliated with the Machine Learning Group, the Center for Language and Speech Processing, and the Center for Population Health Information Technology. I have a range of research interests in machine learning, natural language processing, speech, intelligent user interfaces and health informatics. I use a variety of methods, including bayesian models, topic models, online learning, transfer learning, semi-supervised learning, and structured prediction.

Associate Professor, Computer Science. Computational linguistics (syntax and phonology), natural language processing, statistical machine learning, programming language design

Professor, Computer Science and Electrical Engineering, UMBC. Social media, the semantic web, intelligent agents, and pervasive computing.

Senior Research Scientist. Automatic speaker and language recognition, machine learning, and information forensics.

Hynek Hermansky

Professor, Electrical and Computer Engineering. Robust automatic recognition of speech, speaker identification, auditory models, speech enhancement, noise suppression, speech production and perception.

Aren Jansen

Senior Research Scientist; Assistant Research Professor, Electrical and Computer Engineering.Statistical and machine learning-based approaches to robust speech recognition and low resource speech retrieval.

Sanjeev Khudanpur

Associate Professor, Electrical and Computer Engineering. Applications of information theoretic methods to human language technologies such as automatic speech recognition, machine translation and natural language processing.

Associate Professor, Computer Science, Loyola University Maryland. Knowledge base population, entity linking, information retrieval, and applying information theoretic methods to the software engineering domain.

Nam Lee

Assistant Research Professor, Applied Mathematics and Statistics. Probability theory, stochastic processes and their applications.

Adam Lopez

I am a assistant research professor working primarily at the Human Language Technology Center of Excellence; I am also affiliated with the the computer science department. Broadly, my research is in machine translation. Improvements to translation technology depend on the extension and application of fundamental ideas from algorithms, machine learning, formal language and automata theory, and computational linguistics, and I am interested in a wide variety of problems in these fields.
