I work on extending first-order reasoning systems with probabilistic modal quantifiers. I have also enjoyed working with automatically constructed knowledge bases, semi-supervised and entropy based methods in machine learning, and statistical methods for natural language speech recognition, parsing and translation. My email address is apurtee AT cs DOT rochester DOT edu, and if you see me around campus, this is what I look like:

As of August 2016, I have joined the Rochester Institute of Techonolgy as a lecturer in Computer Science.
