About me

I'm a PhD student working on word alignment of parallel texts. My research interests include parallel text processing, machine translation and machine learning. My thesis supervisors are Lars Ahrenberg and Magnus Merkel.

In 2009, I spent six months at Google, Zürich working as a Software Engineering intern.
