Other Stuff


My research focuses on automated information access, in particular access across languages. Topics of interest to me are:
  • Statistical Machine Translation
  • Cross-Language Information Retrieval
  • Data Mining for Natural Language Processing
For more detailed information check out my Research, Projects and Publications pages.

  • I have 2 open PhD positions in Statistical Machine Translation (click on link for further information and application procedure). Application deadline: October 21, 2013.
  • I have received a Free Competition grant by the Dutch Science Foundation (NWO) for research on statistical machine translation.
  • I have received an advanced research fellowship (Vidi scheme) by the Dutch Science Foundation (NWO) for research on statistical machine translation.
  • New project on Domain and Genre-Independent Translation (DIGIT). This project will fund a PhD position for 4 years.
