I have been pursuing research at CMU since 1995 in and with the following departments: Robotics Institute, Language Technologies Institute, Software Engineering Institute, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Information Networking Institute, Tepper Operations Management & Manufacturing, and various interdepartmental academic and degree programs. Some of the topics I have investigated:
Attracted investment of research sponsors: Army Communications-Electronics Center of the Research, Development and Engineering Command (Army CERDEC), Cyrusoft, Department of Energy Cybersecurity for Energy Delivery Systems (DOE CEDS), Finmeccanica, L3-Com, Lockheed-Martin, Navy Personnel Research, Studies, and Technology (NPRST).
Prior to joining the Robotics Institute, I was a researcher in the Language Technologies Institute where I developed and maintained the English language semantic analysis and automatic disambiguation components of the Catalyst multi-lingual automatic machine translation system. Catalyst is in use by Caterpillar for the automatic translation of its technical documentation from English to multiple target languages with 98 - 100% accuracy.
Before joining CMU, I designed and managed industrial software development projects for Olivetti in Milan, Italy: one was a tax evasion detection product line based on AI technologies and data mining techniques; another was a fault tolerant multi-protocol data communications gateway and message switching center for a major European commercial passenger airline.
