Guest Lectures

I speak several times each semester in HCI and Linguistics graduate classes at the University of Maryland and at Georgetown University.


During these visits, I address the current state of the voice tech industry and speak to the many career paths that are available to someone interested in the fields of VUI and Conversational design.
