Research

I am a senior researcher at the Center for Language Technology, University of Copenhagen. I have been working in the following fields: methodologies for constructing knowledge bases for NLP and information extraction, grammar formalism and implementation (HSPG), computational lexicography, evaluation of NLP resources, corpus linguistics. My main research is in intersentential pronominal anaphora, multimodal communication and annotation of multimodal corpora.
