I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Knowledge Management in Bioinformatics Laboratory (WBI), Humboldt-Universität, Berlin, Germany. Previously, I was a PhD research assistant at the NLP group of the Idiap research Institute, Martigny, Switzerland. My current research activities and interests include Natural Language Processing, Text Mining and Machine Learning.
