Tatyana Ruzsics (Soldatova) joined the URPP Language and Space in May 2016. She is a doctoral student under supervision of Tanja Samardžić (co-supervision with Martin Volk and Balthasar Bickel). Her research interests include deep learning methods for upstream NLP processing: writing normalization, lemmatization, morphological segmentation and morphological reinflection. She is working on the character-level neural machine translation methods that allow processing the information on multiple levels  of text organization (characters, morphemes, words, sentences) in combination with structural information (multilevel statistical language models and recurrent neural networks, linguistic annotation) from heterogeneous resources (noisy text, dictionaries).
