Member of the executive committee of
the ACL Special Interest Group on Computational Morphology and Phonology.
My area of research is Natural Language Processing (NLP), or, more broadly,
I am particularly interested in:
character-level processing: letter-to-phoneme conversion, transliteration,
syllabification, stress predicition
identification of cognates --
words that are similar across different languages
(e.g. English night and German nacht)
- applications of cognates in various areas of NLP,
including language reconstruction,
sentence and word alignment in bitexts,
and detecting confusable drug names
computing word similarity (orthographic, phonetic, and semantic)
applications of bioinformatics in NLP

Some media stories about my research.
We have a weekly
NLP group seminar.
Visitors are welcome.
