Sebastian Schuster

Postdoctoral Researcher

Computational Linguistics
and Computer Science
Saarland University

I am a postdoctoral researcher in computational linguistics at Saarland University as part of the group led by Vera Demberg.

Before that, I was a postdoc in Linguistics and Data Science at NYU as part of the 2020 Computing Innovation Fellow program, mentored by Tal Linzen, and a PhD student in Linguistics at Stanford and a member of the ALPS lab and the Stanford NLP Group, working with Judith Degen and Chris Manning.

My main research interest is in computational semantics and pragmatics. I build and evaluate computational models of interpreting language in context with two goals in mind: to develop formal and psycholinguistic accounts of pragmatic language use and to develop more reliable natural language understanding systems. Please see my publications to find out more.
