Short bio


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-2019, I was a postdoc at the Paris-Diderot University in France (at the LLF lab).

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.
