Amir Zeldes is assistant professor of Computational Linguistics at Georgetown University, specializing in Corpus Linguistics. He studied Cognitive Science, General and Computational Linguistics in Jerusalem, Potsdam, and Berlin, receiving his PhD in Linguistics from Humboldt University in Berlin in 2012. His interests center on the syntax-semantics interface, where meaning and knowledge about the world are mapped onto lexical choice and syntactic structure in language-specific ways. His most recent work focuses on computational discourse models of entity mentions and discourse relations which reflect common ground and communicative intent across sentences. He is also involved in the development of tools for corpus search, annotation and visualization, and has worked on the development of standards for the representation of textual data in Linguistics and the Digital Humanities.
