About
My main topics of interest are Computer-Assisted Human Interpreting and Automatic Spoken Language Translation, which basically means that I study and design NLP/AI systems to augment human interpreters and to automatically translate speeches. Personally, I am passionate about the intersection of mind, brain (also computational) and language instinct.

Other activities
- Founder of InterpretBank, a CAI-tool for professional interpreters
- Consultant in Automatic Speech Recognition and Speech Translation for the bodies of the European Union

Short biography
I received a PhD in Applied Linguistics at the University of Mainz/Germersheim with a thesis on Augmentation of Human Interpreters. I am graduated in Conference Interpreting at the University of Bologna/Forlì and I worked for several years as a conference interpreter. I taught at the University of Innsbruck, at the Postgraduate Center of the University of Vienna, and at the Karlshochschule International University. My career in NLP/AI started at the European Academy of Bozen.
