Eric Malmi

Senior Research Scientist



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.

You can read more about other (side) projects I did during my PhD from my old blog:


  • Natural Language Processing
  • Machine Learning and Data Mining
  • Computational Social Science


  • PhD in Computer Science, 2018

    Aalto University

  • MSc in Computer Science, 2013
