As a postdoctoral researcher in Prof. Vera Demberg's group since April 2017, I am affiliated with the DFG-funded SFB-1102 project "Information Density and Linguistic Encoding".

I am working on the project "Cognitive modelling of information density for discourse relations".

Research Interests:

  • Linguistics: discourse relations, pragmatics
  • NLP: discourse parsing, resource construction, annotation aggregation
  • Psycholinguistics: computational modelling, experimental pragmatics

Teaching activities comprise subjects as:

  • Crowdsourcing linguistic annotations
  • Discourse relations: Cognition, Resources and NLP
  • Recent Advances in Discourse Processing
