Other Interests. Do you love Emacs as much as I do? Lets trade tips and tricks. I want to chat with YOU about text mining. And the chatbots you’re working on.

Public Engagement. Crowdsourcing & Epidemiology: Methods Antibiotic Stewardship in Nursing Homes: Behavioral Intervention Framework Effective Text Mining / Computational Linguistics Building Emotional Intelligence Skills as an International Non-Native Speaker

Languages. 1) English: Native speaker & American citizen.

2) Bengali: Speaking – Ami bangla boli, ar beshi practice chai aro loker songe! (I speak Bangla, and I’d like more practice chatting with other people!).

Reading and Writing – I can read Bangla but it takes ages because I’m still at the character by character translation stage.

3) Spanish: Reading & Writing – I can and do conduct full scientific literature reviews in Spanish.

Speaking – Apologies in advance to my fellow Latinos but if you speak at a slightly slower pace then I’m able to hobble along in conversation.
