Associate Professor Roi Reichart joined the Faculty in ###. He received his Ph.D. from the Hebrew University in 2010. Roi was a Post-Doc Fellow in MIT (2010-2012) and the University of Cambridge (2012-2013)
Prof. Reichart is working on Natural Language Processing (NLP). He is interested in language learning in its context and design models that integrate domain and world knowledge with data-driven methods. He has hence worked on problems such as domain adaptation, learning with minimal human annotation (and involvement), language transfer and multilingual learning, multi-modal (text and vision) processing and NLP of Web data. He is interested in structured aspects of language and has developed effective algorithms for inference across linguistic structures. Finally, I am interested in proper evaluation of NLP algorithms and have worked on problems such as measuring statistical significance in NLP, word embedding evaluation and unsupervised learning (particularly clustering) evaluation.
