About me

I do computational linguistics, focusing on information extraction from scientific corpora, computational terminology, languages for special purposes, knowledge communication, and translation. Steps in my scientific CV include Tilde company in Rīga, Latvia (within the CLARA project), the University of Vienna (PhD), and Saarland University (post-doc).
