Maria Becker

I am a doctoral researcher at the Department of Computational Linguistics under the supervision of Prof. Anette Frank (ICL Heidelberg) and Prof. Andreas Witt (IDS Mannheim). In my PhD thesis I am working on the automated reconstruction of implicit knowledge in argumentative texts. My research interests further include Corpus Linguistics, Discourse Analysis, Media Linguistics, Spoken Language and Deep Learning. My project is funded by the DFG Priority Program „Robust Argumentation Machines“ and associated with the Leibniz ScienceCampus "Empirical Linguistics and Computational Language Modeling".
