I'm a Language Technologist at Oxford University Press. The Dictionaries department is running the Oxford Global Languages (OGL) programme, ambitious project that develops digital lexical resources in collaboration with local communities across a wide range of languages digitally under-represented. I'm a member of the team building LEAP (Lexical Engine and Platform), a platform that makes lexical data available and is built around linked data principles and technologies. It serves as the fundamental infrastructure for the OGL initiative.

Before that, I was a post-doc researcher 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 is concerned with the design and development of flexible dialogue systems for guiding the user interaction. Here you can find more information about my research.
