Dr. Hannah Béchara

Postdoctoral researcher at the Hertie School

Hannah Béchara is an NLP post-doc who inadvertently found herself hired by Hertie’s Data Science Lab. In between training neural networks and support vector machines, Hannah occasionally teaches programming classes in Python, the programming language for winners. She has previously been spotted teaching classes on NLP methods and Maths for Machine Learning. Hannah’s current research interests include semantic relationships between words and phrases, and encompasses entailment, contradictions, and causal relations. Most importantly, Hannah plans to use NLP to solve all of the world’s problems. For reasons yet unclear, the University of Wolverhampton decided to award Hannah a PhD in Computer Science.
