About me

I am an associate professor (universitetslektor) at the Natural Language Processing Group at Linköping University, Sweden.

My research interests revolve around natural language processing (NLP) and machine learning (ML) in challenging scenarios, such as under-resourced languages, multilinguality, or historical documents. I am particularly interested in linguistically-informed approaches to NLP, as well as improving NLP for a wider range of languages and text genres.

Previously, I was assistant professor at the Jönköping AI Lab (JAIL). As a postdoc in the CoAStaL NLP group at University of Copenhagen, Denmark, I worked on a project on “morphologically-informed representations for NLP” that received funding from the EU in form of a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowship. Before that, I worked on various research projects related to computational historical linguistics at Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Germany, where I also obtained my PhD degree in computational linguistics.

I volunteer as Site Development Lead for the ACL Anthology and participate in the steering group of Nationella Språkbanken. Since 2024, I am editor-in-chief of the Northern European Association for Language Technology.

Two new pre-prints out:
Our group is hiring up to 3 PhD students for research on large language models. Update 2023-10-31: We are still hiring one PhD student for research in the TrustLLM project (on multilingual LLMs for lower-resourced languages)!
I gave a seminar talk on “NLP beyond English” at CLASP in Gothenburg.
My EACL paper with Anders Søgaard on “Error Analysis and the Role of Morphology” has received a best paper award!
