Morphological complexity is not there just to increase data sparsity.—E.M.Bender
I am a PhD student at Institute for Language, Cognition and Computation, School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh. My supervisors are Sharon Goldwater and Adam Lopez. My field of study is natural language processing, more specifically semi-supervised and unsupervised machine learning algorithms for morphology induction and reinflection. I also like sub-word unit based (as opposed to word based) natural language processing algorithms.
