I am a fourth year PhD student at the UKP Lab, TU Darmstadt. My research revolves around methods for effective model training. This is usually coupled with low-data scenarios and often involves interacting with a user who can provide the labels for queried instances. If you are interested in this research topic feel free to drop me a message!
