We build systems just like google translate and I have to tell if they are good or not, so people can use them!

My research focuses on making learning and searching for information through Web convenient and easy. Trying to make machine intelligent to understand humans and retrieve answers to our questions effectively and efficiently.

I try to teach computers how to read and understand documents like letters, diaries and books so they can help people who work in museums to get a better understanding of our history.

I create computer programs that can understand your language and then can translate it into any other language and help people speak with each other all over the world.
