I build tools for literature analysis. My specialty is detecting figure of speech. I work specially on figures of repetition (here the yellow ones in the periodic period table above).
I attach great importance to application of my research as well. You will see demos, code, samples that I provide. They will give you a concrete experience of what I do.

Basic text analysis. Lectures given in English. I was teaching computational linguistics treatment such as: lemmatisation, tokenization, finite state transducers, HMM and more. I was the main responsible for this course with responsibility such as: managing the schedule, design and correction of assignment, individual support to students, preparation of lab. The audience were heterogeneous profiles of first year bachelor. I developed pedagogical tools such as MCQs with team work and use of flash cards.
