I’m currently a Language Engineer at Oxford University Press. In the Oxford Languages department we pursue a mission: to unlock the power of language for learning and for life. I’m now focused in leveraging the vast amount of corpora data at Oxford Languages to create linguistic resources.
Oxford Languages is also running the Oxford Global Languages (OGL) programme, an ambitious project that develops digital lexical resources in collaboration with local communities across a wide range of languages digitally under-represented.
Before that, I was an NLP developer at Artificial Solutions, where I contributed to the development of Teneo.
Teneo is a powerful platform for virtual assistants development and analytics. It allows not only to develop virtual assistants in ultra-rapid time, but also helps business users and developers to collaborate on creating sophisticated natural language applications in record time without the need for specialist linguistic skills.
I also did a post-doc at the Natural Language Processing Research Group, which belongs to the TALP Research Center. I was a member of the MT research group, where I worked with Cristina España-Bonet, Alberto Barrón-Cedeño and Lluís Màrquez. My principal tasks were devoted to the Automatic Evaluation of Machine Translation and, in general, the automatic computation of text similarities.
In 2010, I obtained my PhD at the Technical University of Catalonia – Barcelona TECH (UPC), in the field of Artificial Intelligence at the Department of Computer Science. My thesis was concerned with the design and development of flexible dialogue systems for guiding the user interaction.
