I am Mikel Artetxe (pronounced “me-kale art-edge-eh”), a PhD candidate at the IXA group, University of the Basque Country, under the supervision of Eneko Agirre and Gorka Labaka. My general research area is in Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning, with a special focus in low-resource cross-lingual scenarios. My research interests include distributional semantics, machine translation, and unsupervised and semi-supervised learning.
Previously, I completed my BS in Computer Science and MS in Natural Language Processing at the University of the Basque Country, interned once at Facebook and twice at Google, collaborated with Apertium as part of Google Summer of Code, and competed in several programming contests with some degree of success. I am also the guy behind Mitzuli, a fully-featured translator app for Android developed as a personal project.
