About me

As of February 2019 I’ve joined Amazon Alexa AI as an Applied Scientist.

I am interested in natural language processing, deep learning, and probabilistic programing.

I did my PhD at Information and Language Processing Systems / Informatics Institute, University of Amsterdam. During my PhD, I worked on machine translation and deep learning, advised by Christof Monz and Arianna Bisazza. My PhD thesis can be found here.

Before starting my PhD, I completed my master, EMLCT, in computational linguistics at University of Groningen and Charles University in Prague. Marco Wiering and Daniel Zeman were my master thesis supervisors.
