I recently completed my PhD in Artificial Intelligence at the University of Edinburgh. I got my B.A. in Linguistics from Swarthmore College in 2004, and spent two years in California as a Computational Linguist with Inxight Software (a now-defunct offshoot of Xerox PARC.)
I currently make games with my husband, Jamie Montgomerie.
