Will Monroe was introduced to WAYK in a club at Stanford (led by David Edwards) and joined the WAYK team in 2013 to work with the Kodiak Alutiiq language community. He also returned for a brief visit to Kodiak (Alutiiq) and Anchorage (Unangam Tunuu) in 2018. Between those two summers, he was back at Stanford doing graduate studies in natural language processing, the study of computer algorithms for handling human language. He is now in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, putting his research and WAYK skills to work for Duolingo, the popular language learning app. Read Will's guest posts here and here.
