Short Bio

I am a postdoctoral researcher at the CoAStaL NLP research group at the Department of Computer Science, University of Copenhagen.

I am interested in representation of meaning in natural language, and specifically, analysis of graph-structured representations of sentence meaning (examples). I am working on extending the impact of meaning representation to applications such as question answering using knowledge bases.

I completed my Ph.D. on Natural Language Processing in the Program in Brain Research: Computation and Information Processing of the Edmond & Lily Safra Center for Brain Sciences, with Ari Rappoport and Omri Abend at the School of Computer Science and Engineering of The Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

During my Ph.D., I developed a parser for UCCA, a cross-linguistically applicable framework for semantic representation, which builds on extensive typological work, and supports rapid annotation.

I did my B.Sc. in Mathematics and Computer Science at the Open University of Israel. During 2008-2019, I was a software engineer at IBM Research, where I was part of Project Debater.
