As of February 2019, I am a first-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 cross-lingual data linking and natural language processing (NLP). My Ph.D. project is supported by the Insight Centre and ELEXIS — a European Lexicographic Infrastructure.
I hold an M.Sc. in Machine Learning from Paris Descartes University (2016-17) and an M.Sc. in Natural Language Processing from Sorbonne Nouvelle University (2014-16). During my masters, I worked in different research groups, namely at LIP6, LIMSI, and LIPN, on quite various fields of co-reference resolution, language generation and neural machine translation (here is one of my master’s theses). Back in 2013, as a member of the Kurdish Language Processing Project (KLPP) I developed some of the fundamental language processing tools for Kurdish. I obtained my B.Sc. in Software Engineering in 2014 at University of Kurdistan, Faculty of Engineering.
As a multidisciplinary explorer, my research experiences and academic background lie at the junction of Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing. I am also interested in applied mathematics, less-resourced languages processing and particularly, Kurdish language processing. I still work on Kurdish-related NLP projects part-time in collaboration with Kurdish-BLARK.
