Roxana Girju
Assistant Professor
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
https://netfiles.uiuc.edu/girju/

I am interested in Computational Linguistics / Natural Language Processing. The focus on my research is on meaning and I attempt to understand the role of semantics and pragmatics in supporting intelligent inference and use this understanding to develop systems that learn and make intelligent inferences in complex domains.
The target areas of application have been Information Extraction and Retrieval, Question Answering, Text Data Mining, Machine Learning, and Machine Translation. More recently I added Language Evolution, Computer Vision, and Bioinformatics.

Joshua Trampier
Ph.D. candidate
Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations
University of Chicago

My background is in ancient Egyptian languages and cultures, as well as in applying remote sensing and Geographic Information Systems to problems of landscape archaeology. My interest in ancient Egypt ranges from the Neolithic to late Roman/early Islamic periods, and I am interested in addressing questions of relationships between archaeological praxis, CRM-relevant law, tourism, and technology. As the Associate Director of CAMEL, I am also interested in digital archive initiatives and standards, as well as geographical data modeling and visualization.
