I took up my BS Computer Science degree in Mindanao State
University-Iligan Institute of Technology, Iligan, Philippines on 1993.
From the time I graduated, I worked as a programmer/analyst and an IT and
computing science lecturer (1993-2006). My interest
in research started in the year 1999 when I took up Master of Science in
Computer Science in De La Salle University, Philippines.
My masters thesis is on exploiting structural similarities of Philippine
languages for a multi-lingual machine translation system.
Combining the Natural Language Processing (NLP) knowledge I learned from
my masters thesis and the industry-learned Software Engineering techniques
I applied as programmer/analyst, I decided to work on NLP for Computer
Aided Software Engineering (CASE) system as my PhD research topic
here in the University of Waikato since May 2006.
