Hallo, I'm Skatje Myers, a fourth-year PhD student in Computer Science (joint degree in Cognitive Science) at the University of Colorado at Boulder, working with Martha Palmer and James Martin.

I received my BA in Computer Science from the University of Minnesota-Morris in 2010.

Currently, I'm a research assistant on the ClearEarth project, working on using the NLP/ML techniques that have been successfully employed in the biomedical field to establish new semantic resources for the geology, cryology, and biology fields. I'm also a research assistant on THYME, which aims to develop methods to discover events and relations between them from clinical text in order to construct a timeline of medical events.

My research focus is in using active learning techniques to minimise the amount of annotation needed for supervised NLP.
