I am a tenured professor with membership in both the Faculty of Languages and Literature (Fak 13) and the Faculty of Mathematics, Computer Science and Statistics (Fak 16, Zweitmitgliedschaft) at LMU Munich. I am interested in the intersection of natural language processing and machine learning.
I am also the coordinator for the Masters in Computational Linguistics at LMU Munich. This is a mostly German language program (however, in addition to German, you must also have a strong competency in English). For more information about applying to the program, please see this link. If you have questions please first contact our Studienberatung.
