I graduated from Yale in 2006 with a B.A. in Computer Science and Psychology. As an undergraduate I performed research in social robotics, working with Brian Scassellati and Emily Wang, and unsupervised language learning, with Charles Yang. I also spent a tremendous amount of time working on the shows and serving on the board of the The Yale Dramat. Between college and grad school, I worked for the Microsoft Auto team on speech recognition and text-to-speech in cars, specifically on Ford Sync and Kia UVO. I also worked with the Microsoft Research Speech Technology Group on CommuteUX.
My non-research interests include mixology, gardening, and baking.
Online Artifacts That Are and Are Not Me

There's at least one other Constantine Lignos clogging up the intertubes. In case you're wondering, the "conlig" twitter account and constantinelignos.com are not mine.
