Assistant Professor


My name is Aleksandre Maskharashvili. 

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Linguistics at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Before that, I am a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Linguistics at The Ohio State University (OSU) and even before that I was a postdoctoral researcher at OSU, working on natural language generation.

I was also a postdoctoral researcher in the CLASP project, at the University of Gothenburg.  

I received my Ph.D. from the University of Lorraine. During my doctoral studies, I was part of the INRIA team Sèmagramme.

During my studies at Tbilisi State University (2004-2010), I was a member of the team Open Institute of the Georgian Language, Logic and Computer.



Research Interests

My field of research is computational linguistics. I am interested in designing computational and mathematical apparatus that is behind the natural language. I am using synergies of formal, grammar-based approaches and neural network-based ones to study problems in syntax, semantics and discourse.
