I am a post-doctoral researcher at the Natural Language Understanding (NLU) lab of the Idiap Research Institute, lead by James Henderson. Before then, I was a research assistance at TU Vienna, where I pursued my master and PhD.

My research explores deep learning methods, applied in Natural Language Processing, Information Retrieval, and Computational Social Science. I am curious about the position and impact of these methods in real-world challenges.

Areas of interest:
  • Deep Learning
  • Natural Language Processing
  • Information Retrieval
  • Interpretability, Bias, Fairness
  • Computational Social Science
