“Whatever you do, don’t tell anyone!”
Queens of the Stoneage―The Lost Art of Keeping a Secret


Hi, glad you found this site! I work in Natural Language Processing, a subfield of artificial intelligence. I am currently a postdoc at the Center for Language Technology of the University of Copenhagen, working on semi- and unsupervised methods to improve NLP performance on low-resource languages.
I received my PhD from the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, where I was working as research assistant at the Information Sciences Institute. My thesis topic was how to extract semantic types and relations from plain text. A computer can then learn things like football rules from game reports, or whether a word like “in” denotes space or time.
