/ Biography

Lilja Øvrelid is a professor and group leader for the Language Technology Group (LTG) within the section for Machine Learning at the Department of Informatics, University of Oslo. Her research focuses on various types of syntactic and semantic processing of natural language text using machine learning methods, such as dependency parsing, negation/speculation analysis and sentiment analysis. This involves both the development of resources for machine learning, the development of systems which automate syntactic and semantic analysis of language, as well as the application of these systems in downstream tasks.
