I’m Arlie Coles, a deep learning applied researcher and software developer with a passion for linguistics and good coding practices.

I first became interested in NLP and ASR working at the Montreal Computational & Quantitative Linguistics Lab under Morgan Sonderegger. I further pursued these subjects into the realm of machine learning while studying at Mila (Quebec Artificial Intelligence Institute), and am excited about applying well-crafted, extensible, and practical solutions to natural language problems in this rapidly growing field. I now work as a Research Scientist at Nuance Communications.

I also love music theory, liturgy, and playing the piano!
