Faculty and Staff


Emily M. Bender, Faculty Director, CLMA and Lab Director, Computational Linguistics Laboratory.

My primary interests are in multilingual grammar engineering and cyberinfrastructure for linguistics. I am the PI of the Grammar Matrix project. I also maintain the Cyberling Blog.

David Brodbeck, System Administrator.

I keep the CLMA computing cluster running. I also maintain Knoppix+LKB, a bootable CD and VirtualBox appliance with the LKB suite of grammar development tools.


Gina-Anne Levow, Assistant Professor.

My research focuses on discourse and dialogue, emphasizing the role of prosody in spoken language understanding. I am a PI on the highly interdisciplinary Rapport project.




Rob Komjathy, CLMA

I got my bachelor's in Marketing from Western Michigan University and worked for a few years before deciding it was time for a career change. I've studied German for a fairly long time, and have also spent some time with Dutch, Italian, Lithuanian and Latin. I'm going with the "open mind" approach to this whole program, I don't know exactly what interests me the most, but I'm sure it'll become clearer as time goes on. My interests sway like a pendulum sometimes, but the things I enjoy most are reading, video games, playing guitar, and dancing Lindy Hop.


Ebrain Mirambeau, CLMA student

I'm primarily interested in knowledge representation in the Biomedical Informatics realm and my thesis focuses on this. I also have a penchant for Mathematical Linguistics.

Joshua Lutes

Joshua Lutes, CLMA

I received my bachelor's degree in computer science from Brigham Young University. I enjoy NLP in general and I'm not sure exactly which part appeals to me the most yet. I also enjoy knitting, making wooden puzzles, and crosswords.

Chase Hermsen, CLMA

I received a BS in Computer Science and a BA in Linguistics and Japanese, along with a Certificate in Literary Translation, from the University of Rochester in 2010. I am currently a full-time CLMA student with no real focus yet, though I did a bit of reading on knowledge extraction in my undergrad. Hope to have a good year here at UW!


Kelly Peterson , CLMA

I received my BS in Computer Science from the University of Utah. I have wanted to work in Linguistics for years now and am interested in Language Documentation, Cyberinfrastructure, and CALL. I speak French and Spanish and live to travel. In my spare time I enjoy scuba diving, mountain biking, teaching English and playing guitar.


Megan Schneider, CLMA

I received my BS in Computer Science from Texas A&M University, with minors in Linguistics and Mathematics. I am most interested in Computational Neurolinguistics.


Glenn Slayden, graduate student


Emily Silgard, CLMA

I recieved a B.A. in Linguistics from the University of Massachusetts. Outside of school I'm a strength and conditioning coach as well as an avid lover of just about any language I come in contact with.

Anthony Wong, CLMA

B.A. in Linguistics from University of California, Berkeley. I'm a die-hard sports fan of the American big 3: basketball, football, and baseball (in that order).


Michael Wayne Goodman, CL Ph.D. student
Researching Deep Lexical Acquisition and Grammar Development. When I'm not working I like to cook and travel (actually, I do that when I AM working, too).
CLMA, Summer 2009. Thesis: Egad: Efficiently Evaluating and Extracting Errors from Deep Grammars
BS Computer Science, Minor in Japanese at Oregon State University, Summer 2007.

Ka Yee Lun,CLMA

I received my BA in English literature from Western Washington University. It was in an upper division linguistics course at WWU I discovered that I had a keen interest in the study of language itself as well as its applications. After worked in the banking/mortgage industry for about two and a half years, I decided to go back to school to gain advance knowledge in linguistics related field.
