I am an assistant professor at Johannes Kepler University - JKU. Prior to it, I was a post doctoral researcher at Idiap Research Institute (affilated with EPFL), and a PhD candidate at TU Wien. I explore machine learning methods for addressing challenges in language understanding. My research focus is on deep learning methods for information retrieval, summarization, and document analysis, as well as bias and debiasing methods. I am curious about the role and impact of such methods when harnessed for real-world policy challenges.

Areas of interest:
  • Deep and representation learning
  • Natural language processing
  • Information retrieval
  • Bias, debiasing, and fairness in machine learning
