Looking for a post-doc position in 2022

Do you have or are you aware of any position that would be in line with my future research directions?

Please let me know!

I am excited to join the Department of Computer Science at George Mason University as a postdoctoral researcher in mid 2022 working on less-resourced languages ☺️

This is my personal website where I share the latest news about myself and my professional life. I also discuss my ideas and whatever I think is worth to write about here in my blog.

I am a final-year Ph.D. student at the Insight Centre for Data Analytics at the National University of Ireland, Galway where I am advised by Dr. John McCrae in the Unit for Linguistic Data. My research is broadly on lexicographic data linking and natural language processing (NLP). My Ph.D. project is supported by the Insight Centre and ELEXIS - a European Lexicographic Infrastructure. From July to December 2021, I was also a visiting researcher at ATILF and LORIA.

More about me.

Please note that the translation option is only available for headwords. Also, regarding Dbnary, it is currently not possible...

Research Proposal Linked data
Given that I cannot currently focus on too many things at the same time due to existing projects, I would like to write this idea in the form of a blog post. To be addressed, hopefully, sometime in the future! There are thousands of languages around the world which are regional, minority, endangered or under-documented. Oftentimes, these languages are spoken within oppressed linguistic communities where the development and documentation of the language have received trivial...
