I am the Director of the Biomedical Text Mining Group in Larry Hunter's Computational Bioscience Program at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. I am also the d'Alembert Chair in Natural Language Processing for the Biomedical Domain at the Université Paris-Saclay, where I am in the ILES group at LIMSI.

I spent the first half of my adult life doing medical/technical work, and the second half doing linguistics and software development. I was originally trained in articulatory phonetics, but most of my linguistic work has been in the area of natural language processing.

Are you a linguist who's interested in the BioNLP world, but is daunted by the steep molecular biology learning curve? Check out my list of recommended books for linguists who want to move into BioNLP at
