Gretchen Markiewicz is currently studying to complete the MA degree in Cognitive and Neural Systems at Boston University. She graduated from Colby College in Waterville, ME with BA degrees in Mathematics and German. After teaching in a variety of positions, including at a German high school and at a college for students with learning disabilities, she wanted to formally study the process of learning.
Gretchen is interested in computational models of learning and pattern recognition and am interested in how they can be applied to speech and language technology. Upon completing the Master’s, she will work on a CELEST-affiliated project (still to be decided) over the summer, and thereafter hope to foster ties between academic research and applications in industry.
