Nicholas Reese is a Master’s student at the University of Colorado at Boulder, studying Linguistics with a specialization in Human Language Technologies, and he is set to graduate in May of 2016. He worked for Martha Palmer on the Propbank project for three years, and began working with Boulder Language Technologies in 2013. His Master’s Thesis, Domain-Specific Semantic Role Labeling: Portability of Existing Resources, is being completed under the guidance of Dr. Palmer and is directly linked to his work at Boulder Language Technologies. His experience on both projects lead him to the topic, which explores employing PropBank annotations in an intelligent tutoring system. His research interests include natural language processing and computational lexical semantics, machine learning approaches to these topics, and intelligent tutoring and dialog systems.
