John Noecker Jr.
Undergraduate Student
Computer Science and Mathematics
Duquesne University

I am an undergraduate student at Duquesne University pursuing a double major in Computer Science and Mathematics. For the past year and a half I have been working with Dr. Juola on the Java Graphical Authorship Attribution Package (JGAAP), which I have recently begun to use for more interesting problems, such as the one I will be presenting at the colloquium.

My research interests include text classification, particularly authorship attribution, and machine learning techniques. I also studied classification techniques for speaker verification at the 2008 CLSP Workshop on Human Language Technologies at the Johns Hopkins University. I will graduate in May of 2009 with a B.S. in Computer Science and Mathematics, and hope to go on to study machine learning and text classification at the PhD level next fall.

Interests: Data Mining/Machine Learning, Text Analysis, Computational Linguistics
