Subject

I apply statistical methods to lexical-semantic phenomena, with a focus on the linguistic and cognitive plausibility of the computational approaches. My research topics include:

  • automatic induction of semantic classifications and semantic relations,
  • compositionality and meaning shifts of multi-word expressions,
  • synchronic and diachronic ambiguity and figurative language usage,
  • creation of datasets with human judgements on meaning components and meaning relatedness,
  • evaluation of corpus-based semantic knowledge,
  • application of models to lexicography, machine translation, terminology extraction.

I am affiliated with the Chair on Foundations of Computational Linguistics headed by Prof. Jonas Kuhn. For details on my research, my SemRel research group and my teaching check out my personal homepage and my project and team pages below.
