I am the founder of the Natural Language Processing and Knowledge Representation Lab (NLP/KR) in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. Follow the link to the NLP/KR Research Lab to find out the details on the research projects.

My main research interests are in the field of artificial intelligence, especially in the area of knowledge representation, automated reasoning, declarative problem solving, and natural language understanding. My interests span theoretic foundations as well as practical implementation of methods for automated reasoning based on model generation. These methods constitute backbone of such subareas of automated reasoning as Satisfiability, (Constraint) Answer Set Programming, Satisfiability Modulo Solving. I am particularly interested in applying automated reasoning techniques for solving inference problems stemming from natural language understanding domain. Ability to map textual inference into mathematical/automated inference is a fascinating open question.
