I am a PhD candidate at DS3Lab at ETH Zurich with a background in Natural Language Processing (NLP). After an MSc in Artificial Intelligence from the University of Edinburgh, I worked at IBM for a few years on various IBM Watson projects in Germany and Switzerland. The focus of my work lies in enhancing NLP applications with cognitive data such as eye-tracking and brain activity recordings. My long-term goal is to reduce the amount of manual annotation work for training machine learning systems for NLP by passively supervising these systems with brain activity data.
