I am a postdoc staff member in Computational Linguistics (CL) at the Institute of Computational Linguistics and computing scientist (wissenschaftlicher Informatiker) at the English Department of the University of Zurich.
I have written a a low-complexity, broad-coverage probabilistic Dependency Parser for English, Pro3Gres, as part of my doctoral thesis.

My research interests are
I have written a low-complexity, broad-coverage probabilistic Dependency Parser for English, Pro3Gres, as part of my doctoral thesis.
I have written my Master's Paper on Dependency Grammar and the partly dependency-based Link Grammar. I am currently developing Pro3Gres: a robust, probabilistic parser for a Dependency Grammar. In winter 2003/2004 and winter 2005/2006 I am teaching Dependency Grammar Parsing. In winter 2006/2007 I am teaching Parsing Technology.
Both the English Seminar and the Institute of Computational Linguistics have a long tradition in Corpus Linguistics research. In summer 2003, I teach a seminar on Corpus Linguistics. In summer 2006, I teach a colloquium on Corpus Linguistics. In spring 2008, I teach a lecture on Corpus Linguistics, together with Fabio Rinaldi. In spring 2008, I teach the workshop at the ICAME conference, together eith Hans Martin Lehmann and Nelleke Oostdjik.
I have worked in the European Semantic Web project REWERSE, from 2004 to 2005, in the controlled language and semantics project Attempto.
From 2000 to 2004, I have worked in an unsupervised text classification project at the CL department of the University of Geneva
From 1999 to 2000 I have worked in the ExtrAns Project in Zurich.
Since the winter term 1999/2000 I sometimes teach the syntax course of the Zurich CL curriculum. We focus on GB, LFG and HPSG.
