About

I am a PhD Student in the Natural Language Processing Group, supervised by Roi Reichart , at the faculty of Industrial Engineering and Management of the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology.
In my spare time I like running, traveling, baking and doing pilates.

Research

I am interested in a variety of topics in NLP, computational linguistics, computational language acquisition and machine learning. My main research area is multilingual vector space models.

Data

MultilingualWS353: MultilingualWS353 is a translated dataset of the popular wordsim353 dataset to the following three languages: German, Italian and Russian. The translated dataset which consists of 350 word pairs in each langauge was annotated for similarity by human evaluators through the CrowdFlower crowdsourcing service based on annotation guidelines in the corresponding language.

MultilingualSimLex999: MultilingualSimLex999 is a translated dataset of the popular SimLex999 dataset to the following three languages: German, Italian and Russian. The translated dataset which consists of 999 word pairs in each langauge was annotated for similarity by human evaluators through the CrowdFlower crowdsourcing service based on annotation guidelines in the corresponding language.
