Matthias Orlikowski

PhD student in Natural Language Processing (NLP)

I am a Computer Science PhD student in the Semantic Computing Group at Bielefeld University (Germany). Within NLP, I focus on modeling human label variation to learn more equitable models from diverse annotators. From April to June 2022 I visited the MilaNLP Lab at Bocconi University (Italy) to work on related problems in modelling socio-demographics for subjective tasks.

Short CV

I have an interdisciplinary background in Sociology, Computer Science and Computational Linguistics. Before joining the Semantic Computing Group, I was an NLP solutions engineer and researcher (Prêt-à-LLOD) at AI startup Semalytix for 2,5 years. Right after graduating, I had joined the Chair of Digital Humanities at Paderborn University (Germany) as research assistant for five months. During my Masters, I spent three months as a research intern at the Ubiquitous Knowledge Processing (UKP) Lab at TU Darmstadt (Germany).
