Research Interests:

My research interests center around computer science, machine learning, data mining and artificial intelligence. In particular my work is focused in the following areas. See my publications page for more information.

  • Learning Comprehensible Models
    One major focus of my research has been to extend the ability of various machine learning algorithms to produce comprehensible models, i.e. human readable symbolic models expressed through propositional or relational logic languages.
  • Information Extraction
    I am interested in developing automated methods that enable text sources to be better exploited for discovery and decision making in biomedical domains. One main focus of this work is in developing automated methods for extracting structured representations from on-line text sources.

Please, if you have any comments or suggestions, feel free to contact me.
