Martin Chodorow received his Ph.D. in cognitive psychology (psycholinguistics) from MIT. Following a two-year postdoctoral fellowship in computational linguistics at IBM’s Thomas Watson Research Center, he joined the faculty of Hunter College and the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, where he is Professor of Psychology and Linguistics. His research in cognitive psychology looks primarily at two areas – interference effects in implicit memory and factors affecting proofreading. His research in computational linguistics and natural language processing focuses on the measurement of text similarity, automated assessment of writing, and the detection of grammatical errors in writing. He has served as a consultant for IBM, Princeton University’s Cognitive Science Laboratory, and Educational Testing Service.
