About Remo Nitschke

Linguistics PhD student and Human Language Technology student.

I am working on ways to make neural machine translation technologies accessible to low-resource language communities. On the theoretical side, I currently work on the Syntax of German adjectives and on topics pertaining the evolution of language.

I'm an RA with the ToMCAT project.
