My current focus is on Deep Learning applications for Dependency Parsing. Another aspect of my research is the relation between Syntactic and Semantic dependencies.
Previous work included domain adaptation with self-training and automatically generating frames in the FrameNet format for Arabic.
My general research interests are Deep Learning, Natural Language Processing, Speech Recognition, Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Science.
In my spare time I make games and occasionaly take part in Ludum Dare, go hiking or try some calligraphy. And beware, I know very basic kung fu! You have been warned!
My Masters topic focused on using Genetic Programming to generate code for AI. An example application of this was to generate an AI for the Robocode programming game. This AI took part and won Second place in the GECCO '13 competition.
