I am a PhD candidate in Natural Language Processing supervised by Rico Sennrich and Martin Volk.

My research focuses on the application of machine learning to natural language processing. I am interested in systems that use data in multiple languages, and in how their quality can be evaluated.

The position is funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation.
