Alan Akbik is a member of the NLP group at Zalando Research, where he is developing advanced text analytics capabilities over large-scale multilingual text data that is often ungrammatical (Web text) and domain-specific. Before this, he was a postdoctoral researcher at IBM Research Almaden in San Jose, California, and before that a research associate at the Technische Universität Berlin. His research lies at the intersection of natural language processing (NLP) and information extraction (IE), with a particular focus on multilingual data and models of crosslingual semantics.
