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(NLP) and machine learning (ML) in challenging scenarios, such as lesser-resourced languages, multilinguality, or historical documents. As part of the EU-funded research project TrustLLM: Democratize Trustworthy and Efficient Large Language Model Technology for Europe, I am currently working on adaptation, modularization, and tokenization in the context of large multilingual language models.

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. I am also affiliated faculty of the Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program (WASP).

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 obtained a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowship (MSCA) to work on “morphologically-informed representations for NLP”. 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.

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!
