I am a Professor of Computational Linguistics in the Department of Language Science and Technology at Saarland University. I am also a Professor by courtesy of Computer Science. Both departments belong to the Saarland Informatics Campus, one of the strongest academic research centers for computer science in Europe.
I lead the Computational Linguistics group and am the speaker of the Research Training Group “Neuroexplicit Models of Language, Vision, and Action”.
My PhD is in Computer Science from Saarland University; my advisors were Manfred Pinkal and Gert Smolka. Before coming back to Saarbrücken, I was a postdoc at Columbia University and the University of Edinburgh and a Professor of Theoretical Computational Linguistics at the University of Potsdam. I have spent sabbaticals at Meta AI in Paris and the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence (AI2) in Seattle.
|Both of my ACL papers have won outstanding paper awards!
|RTG “Neuroexplicit Models of Language, Vision, and Action” funded by the DFG!
|Two papers accepted at ACL 2023.
|I will spend the next six months on sabbatical at AI2 in Seattle.
|I am now ELLIS Faculty in the Saarbrücken unit.
