Curriculum Vitae

Current Research Foci

I am leading the Web Mining and Language Technology group, which conducts interdisciplinary research in computer science and beyond. The vision driving this research is the idea that there is now so much digital data out there that machines ought to be able to learn to guide us in almost every aspect of our daily life, e.g. by addressing our information needs and helping us make more informed decisions. This, however, requires novel algorithms that simultaneously learn and integrate information from multiple heterogeneous data sources in order to make sense of human language and more generally of the world.

More specifically, my research interests include:

  • Data Mining, Graph Algorithms, and Machine Learning for Natural Language Processing
  • Big Data Approaches to Web and Text Mining
  • Data Integration, Artificial Intelligence, Semantic Technologies, Information Retrieval
  • Multilingual and cross-lingual natural language processing
