Enough about me

Assistant Professor, MSAN Program at the University of San Francisco, I was part of the Speech Lab @ Queens College started by Andrew Rosenberg. (It’s now at Brooklyn College headed by Rivka Levitan and Michael Mandel.) My research interests are in:

  • Natural Language Processing & Computational Linguistics
  • Data Science & Databases
  • Machine Learning

Yes, I am the same David Guy Brizan on Twitter and LinkedIn.
