Research Interests

My research focuses on the interdisciplinary area of Artificial Intelligence and Law. Specifically, I am interested in applying machine learning (ML) and natural language processing (NLP) techniques for legal knowledge and information systems. I have been using NLP techniques to create structured representations of statutory texts in order to make them suitable for further automated processing. Recently, I have worked on information mining and categorization of statutory texts in multi-jurisdictional settings.
