Hi, my name is Zifan (子凡) [tsɹ̩³ fan²] Jiang (蒋) [tɕjɑŋ³]

I am a Ph.D. student interested in machine translation and natural language processing, advised by Prof. Dr. Sarah Ebling and Prof. Dr. Rico Sennrich. I am currently working on automatic sign language processing and translation as part of the Flagship IICT Project. I also study computer vision and sign language linguistics so as to cope with the visual-gestural nature of sign language.

Since August 2021, I have also been working as a scientific programmer on the SNSF project EVOPHON with Prof. Dr. Steven Moran. There I have developed some experience in phonetics, phonology, and audio processing.

Before intrigued by languages and linguistics ...

I have a solid background in computer science and software engineering. For some years I was mainly engaged in Web development, which makes me experienced in topics including computer network, human-computer interaction, programming languages, Web accessibility, and rich-text editors.
