Michael Hahn accepts offer for the tenure track associate professorship in our department

We are very pleased to announce that Michael Hahn has accepted the offer for the tenure track associate professorship in natural language processing in our department.

Michael Hahn studied mathematics and computational linguistics in Tübingen. After a research visit to the University of Edinburgh, he obtained his PhD from Stanford University in 2021.

Michael Hahn's work addresses some of the most fundamental questions in computational linguistics and psycholinguistics: the representation and learnability of important features of linguistic structure using neural models; the relationship between processing and memory in human language comprehension; the development of information-theoretic approaches to language typology that are explanatory rather than merely descriptive.

Michael Hahn will begin his new position in October 2022. We congratulate him and look forward to welcoming an outstanding personality who will make important contributions in both research and teaching.
