Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

I completed my BA (in 2013) and MA (in 2016) in Spanish Philology with specialization in computer science, social psychology and cognitive science. Both degrees were awarded by the University of Helsinki.

Before starting my PhD in language technology in 2017, I worked as a research assistant in computer science (2015-2017) developing a computationally creative Poem Machine.

Later I have been involved with NLP for endangered Uralic languages with extremely low resources and Historical English corpora dealing with the complexity rising form non-standard historical spelling and OCR errors.

I am also continuing with computational creativity research. My interest is nowadays in theoretical grounding of creativity when developing NLG systems that exhibit creative behavior.

I maintain Python libraries that I have developed for my research needs, see for example
