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
