Even though it has been a month since I started working here, I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to everyone at DSV. I am working as a research engineer in the Clinical Text Mining Group led by Hercules Dalianis. My current research covers Language Technology and Health Informatics in general and the Detection of Hospital Acquired Infections in particular.
My background is in Language Technology and Linguistics. I obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Nordic Languages and Anthropology from the University of Freiburg and continued to study the Master’s program in Language Technology at Uppsala University, which I completed in spring 2013. I wrote my Master’s thesis at DSV, focusing on the detection of Hospital Acquired Infections in Swedish patient records using machine learning. My current work pursues the objective to optimize the initial results by applying new preprocessing methods and using a larger dataset.
I am looking forward to working with you and meeting everyone who I haven’t had the chance to talk to yet.
