Short Bio


Having finished my MSc in Computer Science at the University of Zurich in 2016, I worked as a visiting researcher at the DBCLS, Japan, and as a research assistant at the Institute of Computational Linguistics, Switzerland. Now, I am pursing a career as a NLP researcher, in the domain of biomedical text mining, working in two projects: In the SwissMADE project, I am responsible for the automatic processing of electronic patient reports to discover automatically adverse drug events, while in the BERGAMOS project, I am contributing to making annotations on the biomedical literature more interchangeable.
