DESCRIBE YOUR RESEARCH AREA AND FOCUS

More specifically, my research strives to 1) integrate information from the field of semantic typology to natural language processing, 2) and further improve the language technology performance in lower-resourced languages, such as transfer learning.
PROJECTS YOU ARE/WILL BE INVOLVED IN?
- I am working on the project “Multilingual Modeling for Resource-Poor Languages”, funded by the Carlsberg Foundation.
FUN AND OTHER FACTS?
- I have a private collection of up to 600 books in the physical form, ranging from literature, math, and logic to philosophy, mainly in English, Chinese, and German. I have watched “Friends” possibly over ten times and remember almost all the details.
