I am a Ph.D. student at the Insight Centre for Data Analytics at the National University of Ireland, Galway. Working with Dr. John McCrae and Dr. Mihael Arcan in the Unit for Natural Language Processing, my research focuses on cross-lingual data linking. My Ph.D. project is financially supported by the Insight Centre and ELEXIS – a European Lexicographic Infrastructure.
I hold an M.Sc. in Machine Learning from Université Paris Descartes (2016-17) and an M.Sc. in Natural Language Processing from Université Sorbonne Nouvelle (2014-16). During my masters, I worked in different research groups, particularly 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 KLPP project, 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, neural networks design, and less-resourced languages processing.
