I am a postdoctoral researcher in Prof. Dr. Manfred Pinkals's group at the Department of Computational Linguistics & Phonetics and the MMCI Cluster of Excellence, Saarland University.

Before that, I was a postdoctoral research associate at the Institute for Language, Cognition and Computation (ILCC) at the School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh, working with Mirella Lapata.


I obtained my PhD at the School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh, and did my Master's and Bachelor's degree in Computational Linguistics at the Department of Computational Linguistics at the University of Heidelberg, Germany.


My research interests lie in the area of Natural Language Processing. My focus is on learning semantic models from text data using machine learning, and grounding language in vision by learning from multimodal data.
