Sebastian is a 2nd year PhD Student in Natural Language Processing and Deep Learning at the Insight Research Centre for Data Analytics, research scientist at NLP startup Aylien, and organiser of the NLP Dublin meetup.

His main research interests are at the intersection of natural language processing, machine learning, and deep learning. In the context of his research, he's applying methods of these fields to cross-lingual sentiment analysis across different domains as well as aspect- and entity-based sentiment analysis.

Sebastian is interested in finding new algorithms and data sources to improve sentiment analysis systems that can be applied to other domains and tasks and adapting sentiment analysis systems to other languages by leveraging existing monolingual / bilingual data as well as generating new data.
