I am typically looking to recruit one or two ambitious and self-motivated PhD students per year. If you are currently enrolled at Ohio State and are interested in doing research with me on natural language processing, information extraction, machine learning, and/or social media analysis, feel free to send a short email with 1) your C.V. or resume and 2) a brief description of what areas you are interested in working on and what you are hoping to get out of our interaction. Having previous interaction with me in a class (and doing very well) is a plus. Students outside OSU are welcome to send email, but admissions decisions are made by committee. I get many of these emails so unfortunately I am not always able to reply - that doesn't mean I haven't read your note!
