Short bio


I am currently a postdoc at the Paris-Diderot University in France (at the LLF lab).

I have a PhD in Computer Science, in the field of Natural Language Processing. I defended my thesis in December 2017, obtaining a joint PhD degree from UFRGS (Brazil) and AMU (France).

Until mid-2018, I held a temporary teaching and research position (ATER) at LIS/TALEP.

Research interests

My research focuses on the automatic identification of the level of compositionality in multiword expressions (MWEs). See my publications.

Some keywords: multiword expressions, MWEs, compositionality, idiomaticity, lexical semantics, nominal compounds, lexical resources, corpus annotation, large-scale evaluations, distributional semantic models, word embeddings.
