Goodbye, Dr. Kennington!

Last week saw us say goodbye to Casey, who after a short stint as a postdoctoral researcher here has now moved back closer to home, on to a tenure-track position at Boise State, Idaho, USA. Congratulations!

Casey was the first to join the Bielefeld incarnation of the Dialogue Systems Group, so with him and Spyros Kousidis (the second member) now having moved on, it does feel like the start up phase has now concluded. Casey’s had quite the run here, with almost 20 peer-reviewed publications (including 3 full *acl papers). We’re excited to see what he’ll do next!
