Head of the Research Group "Efficient algorithms in computational linguistics"
Welcome to my homepage. After two years as a DFG Research Fellow at Columbia University and the University of Edinburgh, I have returned to Saarbrücken to be the head of my own research group, "Efficient algorithms in computational linguistics". The group is part of the recently established Cluster of Excellence "Multimodal Computing and Interaction".
Within my project in the cluster, I will focus on real-time situated natural language generation in virtual 3D environments (see also the GIVE Challenge, which I am organizing). Next to NLG, my research interests encompass computational semantics, efficient algorithms in computational linguistics, formal languages, and many other topics.
On this website, you can find the list of my publications, some of my recent talks (to the extent that I've had time to put them online), and some software that I've been involved in. You will also find links to some courses that I've taught. I'm particularly proud of the talking robots projects I supervised together with Geert-Jan Kruijff (see a video).
