David is completing his PhD at CUNY's Graduate Center, working with Andrew Rosenberg. His research interests are natural language processing and machine learning, specifically on the personal and cultural/demographic information transmitted during speech and typing. This research may lead to more accurate speech recognition systems. Prior to joining USF, David was a research assistant in the Speech Lab at Queens College, an instructor at Hunter College, and he has previously worked for the City of New York, IBM, United HealthCare and other public and private institutions.
