Welcome Charles! Glad to have you onboard.


TIL Wikipedia does not have an article on computational morphology. Next best is the article on morphological computation, which disambiguates 50% to non-existing content. Two clicks further I learned morphology is about morphemes which are not to be confused with words. I’m hoping google will add a Knowledge Graph infobox on this topic soon ;-)

Subject: [Analytics] Welcome Charles Salvia


Hi Everyone,


Please extend a warm welcome to the newest member of the Analytics team, Charles Salvia. We're really excited to have Charles on the team! 


In his own words:


Charles Salvia is a software engineer/open-source enthusiast who has been programming computers since the days of MS-DOS.  Charles worked for a (very small) startup, where he developed a search-engine and webcrawler from scratch, and spent plenty of time researching natural language processing, computational morphology, and machine learning, which eventually landed him a job working at Bloomberg working on web-crawlers and pattern recognition algorithms.  Charles regularly posts on Stackoverflow, and contributes to the Boost C++ project, as well as WebKit.  Charles can be contacted atcsalvia@wikimedia.org.


He'll be working out of New York. Welcome to the Foundation, Charles!
