Rico Angell

I am a Ph.D. candidate in computer science at University of Massachusetts Amherst working with Andrew McCallum on machine learning and natural language processing. My research interests include machine learning, automated knowledge base construction, human-centered artificial intelligence, clustering, and natural language processing. I am generously supported by the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. My CV can be found here.

I completed my undergraduate degree at University of Michigan in Ann Arbor in computer science and engineering with a minor in math. I worked with Andrew DeOrio applying machine learning to hardware verification and Grant Schoenebeck on a heuristic for the influence maximization problem.
