Biography:

Kevin Scannell earned a BS in Pure Mathematics at MIT in 1991 and a Ph.D. in Mathematics at UCLA in 1996 under the supervision of Geoffrey Mess. His mathematical research focused on hyperbolic 3-manifolds, low-dimensional topology, and mathematical physics. After spending two years at Rice University as a G. C. Evans postdoctoral instructor, he joined the faculty at Saint Louis University in 1998. His current research uses machine learning to develop computational resources that support speakers of indigenous and minority languages around the world, particularly Irish and the other Celtic languages.
