About me


I am a second year master student at the Erasmus Mundus Programme in Language & Communication Technologies (LCT). I studied my first year at Charles University in Prague, and now I am following it up in the University of Malta. Previously, I did my bachelor in Mechatronics at the National University of Engineering in Lima, Peru.

I am mainly interested in developing language tools for under-resourced languages, approaching the problem as language-independent / universal as possible. Past experience in this regard include morphological analysis, POS tagging, and speech recognition for Peruvian native languages such as Quechua and Shipibo-Konibo.
