Rodrigo Wilkens

Short Bio

I'm currently researching on text simplification for French as a postdoc at LiLPA in University of Strasbourg. I have a PhD in Computer Science, in the field of Natural Language Processing, obtained in 2016 from the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (Brazil). My interests include language profiling, cognitive computational models, computer assisted language learning, knowledge extraction, question answering, information retrieval, knowledge representation, chatterbots, text classification, text simplification, word embedding, and user modeling; for both Portuguese and English. During my career I have worked in research groups in the Federal University of University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS), Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and Université catholique de Louvain (UCLouvain).
