Hi! I'm a PhD student supervised by Martin Volk and Rico Sennrich. I'm super interested in Machine Translation and Human–Computer Interaction, and hope to synthesise the two into interactive systems that make translation more efficient and enjoyable. If you'd like to have a chat or are interested in a programming / BA / MA project in the area of interactive MT, don't hesitate to get in touch!
