I am an assistant professor (lektor) at the University of Iceland. I work on the realization of morphemes at the interfaces of syntax with interpretation and sound in the Distributed Morphology framework. I also work on language technology; in particular, I am one of the authors of the Icelandic treebank, IcePaHC. IcePaHC can be queried online at treebankstudio.org.

Recent and upcoming events

The team behind the Icelandic Language Technology Programme of the Government of Iceland, of which I am a member, will be presenting an overview of the project at LREC 2020 in France.

Lilja Björk Stefánsdóttir and I recently presented a paper at the CLARIN 2019 conference in Leipzig. The paper describes how we detect lifespan change and style shift in parliament speeches by the Icelandic politician Steingrímur J. Sigfússon.

At LREC 2020, Hildur Jónsdóttir and I will be presenting work on Parallel Universal Dependencies for Icelandic. This is the first parallel treebank for Icelandic.

In February 2020, Steinunn Rut Friðriksdóttir and I will be presenting a paper on disambiguating confusion sets in a language with rich morphology at ICAART 12 (International Conference on Agents and Artificial Intelligence).
