I am an assistant professor in the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation (ILLC) at the University of Amsterdam (UvA). I joined ILLC in April 2013, before that (2009-13) I was a head of a research group and a junior faculty member at the Saarland University. My research interests are in computational linguistics, natural language processing, machine learning and language technologies. Recently, I am especially interested in learning semantic representations for reasoning.

I am an action editor for the journal of machine learning research (JMLR). My other recent professional services include an area chair for NLP-related Machine Learning at EACL 2012, a senior PC member for IJCAI 2011, best-paper award committee member at EACL 2012, PC member / reviewer for ACL (2009-13), ICML (2008-2010, 2013), NIPS (2011-2013), NAACL (2009-2013), EMNLP (2008-2012), ECML (2006-07, 2012), CL journal, JAIR, TACL and others.
