Martin Schmitt

I am a PhD student in Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning at CIS (Center for Information and Language Processing), Munich University (LMU Munich), supervised by Prof. Dr. Hinrich Schütze.
My current research focus lies in computational models of context-sensitive relation inference.
