Sarah Elisabeth Kiener, M.A.

Research Assistant

I am currently enrolled in the Master’s program Computational Linguistics with the Minor Neuroinformatics at the University of Zurich. Besides, I work part-time as a Research Assistant in the Digital Linguistics Group. I have obtained my first Master’s as well as my Bachelor’s degree in Linguistics and Science of Religion at the University of Bern. 

I am interested in language in all its facets. Currently, I am focusing on the intersection between language and machine learning. I am particularly interested in how linguistic and cognitive data can be used to train models and how the predictions of these models benefit humans in various ways, e.g. through the early recognition of language disorders.
