Reader in computational linguistics
I am reader in computational linguistics (that’s usually referred to as associate professor in many countries) at University of Wolverhampton, UK, and the deputy head of the Research Group in Computational Linguistics. I am currently the Local Course Coordinator (Wolverhampton) for an Erasmus Mundus programme on Technology for Translation and Interpretation. In the past, I was deputy coordinator of the EC FP7-funded FIRST project (concerned with text simplification for people with autism) and coordinator of the EXPERT project (concerned with training young researchers to promote the research, development and use of translation technologies). I was also the Local Course Coordinator (Wolverhampton) for the Erasmus Mundus International Masters in Natural Language Processing and Human Language Technology (EM NLP&HLT) and I previously managed two European projects (QALL-ME and MESSAGE) and was involved in many others. I have received my BSc in computer science at Babes-Bolyai University, Cluj-Napoca, Romania and my PhD from University of Wolverhampton with a thesis entitled Comparative evaluation of modular automatic summarisation systems using CAST.
