I am a Ph.D. student at the Internet Technology and Data Science Lab (IDLab) at the Ghent University. I am part of the Text-to-Knowledge (T2K) Group. My supervisors are Prof. Chris Develder, Prof. Thomas Demeester, and Prof. Véronique Hoste.
My research spans a variety of topics related to the use of Machine Learning in Natural Language Processing. Currently, my main research interest lies in the area of Information Extraction (IE). I am particularly interested in linking the information in text to Knowledge Bases and leveraging the external knowledge sources to improve the performance of IE tasks.
