Putting specialism into perspective
A special feature of doing a PhD is becoming a specialist on a specific topic. This is a good thing, but how can you make sure you don’t narrow your view too much?
Computational linguistics is a highly interdisciplinary field, where language and technology are simultaneously the focus of investigation. Malvina considers herself lucky to work in a field that is naturally hybrid. Through examples from her own research and teaching, she will show how powerful different perspectives (even those of humans and machines) can be in understanding and solving problems.
Dr. Malvina Nissim is Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Arts at the University of Groningen, where she focuses on computational linguistics and natural language processing. In 2016 she was awarded with the title “University of Groningen Lecturer of the Year” because of her enthusiastic, interactive and energetic way of teaching.
