I am a PhD Student at Digital Enterprise Research Institute (DERI), National University of Ireland, Galway and I am working in the Unit for Natural Language Processing (UNLP) under supervision of Dr. Paul Buitelaar.
I studied German Language at the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia, where I worked on my Diploma thesis "Named Entity Recognition for German and Slovene" under the supervision of Stojan Bračič and Špela Vintar.
In 2009 I obtained my Masters degree in Computational linguistics at the Ruhr University in Bochum, Germany. My master thesis under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Ralf Klabunde dealt with extraction of semantic relations from the Slovene national corpus.
I am currently working in the MONNET (Multilingual Ontologies for Networked Knowledge) project which is European Project with the goal to provide standards and technology to facilitate multilingual access to Semantic Web knowledge resources.
