Research Interests

My principal research interest is to bridge between well-defined linguistic theories and data-driven statistical approaches to speech and language processing. My current research aims at developing quantitative methods to measure mutual intelligibility and inter-comprehension among closely-related languages, targeting the Slavic language family as a case study. I am also interested in Multilingual Speech and Language Processing, Representation Learning for NLP, Multitask Transfer Learning, and Linguistic Typology in NLP.
