Research interests

I work in the field of computational linguistics, using computational methods to answer questions about human languages, as well as its applied side (often referred to as natural language processing). In particular, I have worked with machine translation and language modeling, particularly using neural networks, and word alignment using Bayesian models.

I have also done some work on Automated Essay Scoring (AES) in Swedish for automatic grading of student essays, and part-of-speech (PoS) tagging. See my list of publications (http://www.robos.org/sections/research/) and my github page (https://github.com/robertostling) for further information.
