Project Title: Estimating the confidence and quality of corpus-based approaches to translation

Project Description: 

I am working on deep integration of NLP technologies into tools for Computer Aided Translation. I am also interested in using implicit feedback from translators to improve Machine Translation.

Research Interests:
