Since January 2018 I’m pursuing a PhD at the Spectrum Centre for Mental Health Research at Lancaster University.
From July 2017 – December 2018 I was a research assistant in Prof. Ngoc Thang Vu’s Digital Phonetics group at the IMS. I worked on cognitively motivated natural language generation (NLG) using deep learning and other statistical methods.

During my Bachelor and Master studies at the IMS, I was a member of the student council, which I headed from 2014-2105.
In 2014 I was a mentor for an elementory school girl with migrand background within the project Kinderhelden.
In 2015 I was a mentor for an international student from Ukraine within the cross cultural mentoring program.
