He holds a BS in Mathematics from MIT, an MS in Mathematics from the University of Minnesota and a PhD in Computer and Communication Sciences from the University of Michigan. He was an assistant professor and a tenured associate professor in the cognitive sciences at the University of California, Irvine. He served 3 years at the National Science Foundation and is webmaster and treasurer of TEAA, a charitable NGO assisting secondary education in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania. In addition to computer science, his university level teaching includes courses in linguistics, economics, psychology, mathematics and physics. Hamburger published over 50 scientific papers on intelligent tutoring systems, natural language processing, expert systems, theoretical and empirical studies of language acquisition and game theory and its applications, as well as two books on models: on game-theoretic models in the social sciences and on logic and language for computer science. His research has been supported by ONR, NIMH, NRL, NSF and DARPA. Early in his career, he and two colleagues established language learnability theory as a key subfield of modern linguistics. His work on language and cognition has appeared in the leading journals Cognition, Cognitive Science and the Journal of Artificial Intelligence and Education. Later he was active in the field of expert systems and its representation of uncertainty. More recently he pioneered in the conception of an AI-based approach to situated language learning by means of human-computer conversation in two media - the human language to be learned and interactive animations depicting it - interrelated via a knowledge base to support a meaningful ongoing situation. With NSF support he implemented these ideas and successfully tested the system with foreign students learning English. He developed a knowledge-based tool for sketching, animating and building a world of animated objects and he significantly modified and improved a natural language processing system. These were integrated into a tutorially sound discourse management capability, based on a combination of tutorially relevant styles of graphico-linguistic interaction and alternative ways of talking about events using a variety of grammatical phenomena.
