Current Work

I am a research assistant working in the machine translation project Verbmobil, subproject "Translation". The contents of my work are designing and implementing an ADT interface for several linguistic submodules of the Verbmobil prototype and also developing the "IMS Transfer System". Both programs are mainly realized in Prolog.

During the summer semester '97 I co-taught a computational linguistics course (IMS local link) and a course on the dialog system "Verbmobil" (IMS local link). During the winter semester '97/'98 and '98/'99 I taught a Prolog programming course (IMS local link).
