Stefan Riezler joined Heidelberg University as full professor in 2010, after spending a decade in the worldâ€™s most renowned industry research labs (Xerox PARC
, Google Research
). He received his PhD in Computational Linguistics from the University of TĂĽbingen
in 1998, and then conducted post-doctoral work at Brown University
in 1999. Prof. Riezler's research focus is on machine learning for natural language processing problems, especially for the application areas of cross-lingual information retrieval and statistical machine translation. He is engaged in the area of Computational Linguistics, e.g., as editorial board member of the main journals Computational Linguistics
and Transactions of the Association for Computational Linguistics
, and conducts interdisciplinary research as member of the Interdisciplinary Center for Scientific Computing
and as Marsilius Fellow
at Heidelberg University.
