I am a member of Churchill College in the University of Cambridge and a PhD student in the Computer Laboratory, working in the Natural Language and Information Processing Group. The area of my research is text mining and information retrieval from biomedical texts, with supervisor Ted Briscoe.
Before that, in 2008-2009 I did an MPhil course in the Computer Lab, called Computer Speech, Text and Internet Technology. The topic of my dissertation was Adaptive Interactive Information Extraction.
I also studied three years in Tallinn University of Technology where I got my bachelor's degree with the thesis Creating a Model for Audiovisual Speech in Estonian.
