I am a senior lecturer at the Institute of English and American Studies at the University of Debrecen. I have been a member of the faculty since 1997.

My interests include lexicon design for language modelling, computational lexicography, distributional semantics, word embeddings and ANN-based machine learning in general. I am a member of the Lexicographical Committee of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.

I have obtained my Ph.D. degree in Linguistics in 2006. The title of my dissertation was “Perspectives on the lexicon” (Budapest: Akadémiai Kiadó, 2008). My book on Distributional Semantics was published in 2014 ("The Company that Words Keep: Distributional Semantics", Debrecen: DU Press).

I also have an MSc in Information Technology and I use this knowledge regularly. I used to be employed by the Center for Computing at UD as network administrator. Now I use programming skills to support my research in computational linguistics. I have also been the the administrator of the Moodle-based e-learning system of the Institute of English and American Studies (dleias.unideb.hu, now replaced by the university's e-learning site) for 13 years.
