She is also project leader of the HealthDoc project, which works to develop natural language generation systems for producing multimedia health information tailored to medical conditions and patient characteristics. Her current research includes: a project to formalize an ontology of rhetorical figures for use in computational natural language applications, an automated text-messaging system to promote breast feeding in new mothers, and an automated personalized Virtual Sleep Coach.
