Hi, my name is Zifan [tsž̩ː fǽn] Jiang [tɕǎŋ]

I am a PhD student interested in machine translation and natural language processing, supervised by Prof. Dr. Rico Sennrich and Prof. Dr. Martin Volk. I am currently working on automatic sign language translation as part of the Flagship IICT Project led by Dr. Sarah Ebling.

I did my master thesis project with  Dr. Mathias Müller and Amit Moryossef on Machine Translation between Spoken Languages and Signed Languages in Written Form (PDF, 2 MB).

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.
