I’m a PhD student at the Department of Computational Linguistics working on my SNSF funded project Natural Language Processing for Low-Resource Language Variations (LORELAI). From August 2022 until March 2023 I'm visiting the Berkeley Speech and Computation Lab at UC Berkeley.
I’m very much fascinated by dialects and language variations and the challenges they pose for NLP.
Check out my publication Improving Zero-Shot Cross-lingual Transfer Between Closely Related Languages by Injecting Character-Level Noise, an ACL 2022 Findings paper. POS tagging models for Swiss German trained with this approach are available on the Huggingface model hub.
