I am a senior researcher/associate professor at the Centre for Language Technology, Department of Nordic Studies and Linguistics, 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.
