I am currently pursuing my PhD on the topic of Spatial Language in Referring Expression Generation. My goal is to map mental models of space and how these are reflected in one or more natural languages. This knowledge shall be applied to enhance referring expression modules that produce locative expressions. Such modules are primarily meant to be used in Natural Language Generation systems, but could be applied in any Artificial Intelligence system that processes spatial language.

Research Interests

Spatial Language, Natural Language Generation, Ontologies, Multilinguality.
