I'm a PhD student in Language Technology at University of Helsinki. I work under the supervision of Anssi Yli-Jyrä and Atro Voutilainen. I'm interested in computational linguistics, formal grammar and machine learning.
My PhD project focuses on unsupervised learning algorithms and induction of formal grammars, especially context-free grammars. In particular, my aim is to identify sub-classes of context-free grammars whose structural properties can be effectively learned from positive samples of string data alone.
My current academic interests are:
- Computational linguistics
- Formal grammar and formal languages
- Natural language processing
- Machine learning
- Mathematical logic
During academic year 2011-2012 I was involved in research related to reliability of chaotic models at the London School of Economics.
I also work as a consultant at Accenture specialising in technology strategy and enterprise architecture.
