Frank Ferraro is an assistant professor in the Computer Science and Electrical Engineering department at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. His research focuses on computational event semantics, and unlabeled, structured probabilistic modeling over very large corpora. He has published on a number of cross-disciplinary basic and applied projects, and has papers in areas such as multimodal processing and information extraction, latent-variable syntactic methods and applications, and the induction and evaluation of frames and scripts. He holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Johns Hopkins University and Bachelors in Computer Science and Mathematics, from the University of Rochester.
