Andreas Thomas Marfurt
I am a PhD student in the Natural Language Understanding Group at Idiap. My interests lie in representation learning for NLP and deep learning in general. My current focus is on the extraction and representation of salient information in summarization. I'm funded by an SNF Sinergia grant on the automated interpretation of political and economic policy documents.
I received both my BSc (2011) and MSc (2013) in Computer Science from ETH Zürich. After that, I helped start a health data platform MIDATA.coop and was the first employee of 1plusX. I then joined the Data Analytics Lab at ETH Zürich as a PhD student for two years before moving to Idiap in autumn 2018.
