About

I am working as a data scientist at ASML, where I use machine learning in the semiconductor industry. Together with a large number of physicists, computer scientists, and mathematicians, we push Moore’s law at ASML.

Prior to this, I was a PhD research fellow at the Department of Computer and Information Science at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), under the supervision of Prof. Svein Erik Bratsberg and Prof. Krisztian Balog (University of Stavanger).   I was (and still is) a member of Information Access and Interaction (IAI) group at the University of Stavanger. My PhD research on information retrieval and semantic search systems has received several awards, including  the best paper honorable mention award at the ICTIR 2016 conference and the best short paper honorable mention award at the SIGIR 2017 conference.

Research interests:
Machine learning, Information retrieval;  Semantic searchStructural indexing; Computational linguistics
