I am an assistant professor at Johannes Kepler University - JKU. Prior to it, I was a post doctoral researcher at Idiap Research Institute (affiliated with EPFL), and a PhD candidate at TU Wien. I explore deep learning methods in natural language processing and information retrieval, with a focus on the measurement of societal biases in these methods and debiasing approaches. 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 NLP abd IR
