We are organising a Workshop and Shared Task on Quality Assessment for Text Simplification at LREC2016. The full description of the shared task and the training data can be found here.

I have recently joined the Natural Language and Speech Group (Departament of Informatics, Faculty of Sciences, University of Lisbon), as a postdoctoral researcher on the QTLeap project.

My main research interests are:

  • Text simplification
  • Machine translation
  • Machine learning
  • Language variation and change
  • Corpus linguistics
  • Statistical analysis
