About Me

stud.picHi! I’m Matīss. I’m a computer science PhD. My field of study is natural language processing and, in particular, machine translation (MT). The topic of my thesis was MT system combination, but apart from that I’ve also done work on neural MT and multi-word expressions in MT.

In my spare time I ride bicycles, swim, run, take photos, and do small software and hardware hacking projects. I also like technology and gadgets, rock music, Yu-Gi-Oh trading cards, anime and traveling.

On this website I maintain a set of my favorite photos that I have taken over the years. Once or twice per year some get added and others get removed. A wider range of my photos can be found in Keda.
