Sabrina Wilske

Welcome to my webpage. I was a PhD student within the International Research Training Group (IRTG) Language Technology and Cognitive Systems at Saarland University.
In June 2015, I defended my thesis, which was supervised by Manfred Pinkal and Detmar Meurers and significantly supported by the collaboration with Magdalena Wolska.
From August 2011 to March 2015, I was at University of Bremen, working in the digital media for education group. Since June 2015 I work for TNS in London. I am interested in natural language processing, computational linguistics, dialog systems, computer-assisted language learning, second language acquisition, analysis of learner language, automated feedback, collection and statistical analysis of experimental data, teaching technology, programming and computer science to diverse audiences, digital fabrication technologies including 2D and 3D modelling, 3D printing, laser cutting and physical computing.
