Professor on Language Technologies (Catedràtica Contratada) at the Departament de Traducció i Ciències del Llenguatge of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF) and senior researcher at the Institut de Lingüística Aplicada (IULA), also, of the UPF.
My area of research is Natural Language Processing (NLP). My current interests are mainly related to the automatic acquisition and exploitation of Language Resources (LR). Currently, I am leading a research group focused on projects related to Technologies of Language Resources
In 1986, I started working in NLP when I was awarded a grant to collaborate with the group that was developing Spanish modules for METAL, a machine translation system, in Siemens-Barcelona. In 1987, I moved to work for the EU project EUROTRA, also in Machine Translation, hosted by the Universitat de Barcelona (UB). In 1993, I became technical director of a small group of researchers in the UB while continuing work within the field of NLP through different research projects under the Grup d'Investigació en Lingüstica Computacional - Universitat de Barcelona. These projects were mainly related to the development of Language Resources and NLP applications (MULTEXT, PAROLE, SIMPLE, TRADE, PEKING).
In 2003 I was awarded with a 5 years grant by the Ramón y Cajal Program of the Spanish Ministerio de Educación y Ciencia to work at the IULA. In 2009 I was appointed Associate Professor of the Departament de Traducció i Ciències del Llenguatge of the UPF, and in December 2018 I was promoted to Full Professor.
