Hi, I am Reyyan. I am a second year PhD student in LTI. I am currently working with Jamie Callan on Information Retrieval on Blogs.
I am interested in social media especially how and why people interact with it. I am also interested in behaviors of social networks. With this course I am hoping to learn more about these and hopefully apply them in a cool project.
In addition to IR, I am also working on Statistical Machine Translation as my 20% project. I am from Turkey therefore I focus mainly on SMT between English and Turkish. In my previous years, I worked on projects that are related to Computational Biology, Medical Informatics and Knowledge Representation.
