Alan Ramponi joins NLP at ITU

Alan is a Ph.D. student in natural language processing at Fondazione The Microsoft Research – University of Trento COSBI, Italy. His research focuses on unsupervised domain adaptation and deep learning methods for biomedical information extraction from scientific publications. Broadly, his interests are centered on building robust language models which are resilient to domain shift, thus being readily applicable to real-world problems in which the target domain is not known in advance.

Alan will be doing his work as a visiting Ph.D. fellow with Barbara Plank, researching domain adaptation methods for all the stages of the task of biomedical event extraction.
