Profile

My main research interests are in corpus linguistics, educational technology, and applications of natural language processing in foreign language teaching. Continuing from my Masters work in genre analysis, I developed software to automatically analyze texts at the sentence and discourse level for my PhD. Since then, I have been developing educational software for use by researchers, teachers, and learners in corpus linguistics, including AntConc, a freeware concordancer, AntWordProfiler, a freeware vocabulary profiler, and more recently web-based monolingual and parallel concordancers. I also participate in joint projects with researchers in the fields of science and engineering, where I act in a number of roles, sometimes serving as a technical advisor and other times as a technical writer. To date, these projects have been related to organic chemistry, mechanical engineering, and applications of machine learning techniques in computer security systems and web search systems. I also work with several national and international companies in the development of commercial software applications, and as a consultant on technical writing and presentation.
