Biography

I’m a Research Scientist at Google Zürich, working on Natural Language Generation. Before joining Google, I did my PhD at Aalto University under the supervision of prof. Aris Gionis. In my dissertation, I developed machine learning and data mining methods for linking historical population records and for inferring large family trees.
