Self portrait (cca. 2014,
but I haven't changed much)

I joined the Department of Computational Linguistics at Heidelberg University on April 1st (in a very serious manner) 2016, as part of the Leibnitz Science Campus.

I arrived here via the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca, Cluj-Napoca, Romania → University of Ottawa, Ottawa, Canada → Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies (HITS, formerly known as EML Research gGmbH), Heidelberg, Germany → University of Heidelberg, Heidelberg, Germany → HLT-NLP group, FBK Trento → (back) here.

I have produced two resources: WikiNet (a network of concepts based on Wikipedia, which you should also find described on the HITS website) and knoWitiary (a formalization of the knowledge in Wiktionary).
