Nathan David Green

Nathan Green in the Iceland Review

Nathan is an ESR Researcher at the Institute of Formal and Applied Linguistics at Charles University in Prague.

Current Research

His current research is in dependency parsing and the effects of annotation style on dependency parsing and statistical machine translation.  Additionally, he plans on pursuing unsupervised learning methods to increase the scope of languages that can make use of dependency structures.

Research Background

Nathan’s undergraduate degree was completed at North Carolina State University in 2003. He completed my masters degree in Computer Science from The George Washington University in Washington DC while working for the Bureau of Labor Statistics in 2006. Before going to Charles University in Prague, he spent a year in Iceland on a Fulbright Fellowship and continued his research at NCSU.
