I’m finishing up a Ph.D. in computer science at Carnegie Mellon University, where I teach computers to understand English. In particular, we humans use a bewildering variety of language to talk about cause and effect, so I build software to help computers decipher what we mean. (Side benefit: if anyone questions whether I understand cause and effect, I’ll get to say I literally have a Ph.D. in it.)
