Intro

I am a researcher and the Associate Director of CLASP at the University of Gothenburg. My research focuses on document-level NLP, recently with an interest on how humans interpret everyday referring expressions like 'it', 'this', and 'that', regarding events vs entities.

I was a postdoc for several years. My last position was at the Linguistics Department of the University of Potsdam. Before that, I held several appointments in various Nordic universities: for two years I was part of CLASP, University of Gothenburg, and previously I split my time between the Digital Humanities Department, University of Helsinki and the Computational Linguistics group at Uppsala University.

Some years ago, I was behind many activities related to the DiscoMT Workshops. Also, I worked as Editorial Assistant for the Computational Linguistics Journal.

I obtained my PhD in 2017 from the University of Geneva with Mention très honorable. My thesis discusses some ideas for the treatment of pronominal anaphora and verbal tenses in the context of machine translation. This was the time before NMT, but if you are interested, you can find it here.

Back when I was a PhD student, I also completed an internship at IDIAP Research Institute. This work yielded a spin-off tool to annotate verbs with tense, mood and voice information.

Before my PhD studies, I worked on Spanish syntax using a LFG framework and the XLE platform for grammar development.

In my free time I enjoy hiking, cooking, books, good wine, movies...
