About me


I am Ulme Wennberg, currently pursuing my doctoral research at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. My specialization lies in Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence, with a keen focus on Natural Language Processing (NLP). Since 2020, I have been part of the Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems, and Software Program (WASP), working under the guidance of my supervisors Gustav Eje Henter and Jonas Beskow.

Academic and Research Pursuits

My role as a PhD student involves extensive research in machine learning with a concentration on advancing the field of NLP. My work has led to notable contributions in international conferences, including ACL 2021 in Bangkok and ICASSP 2022 in Singapore. One of my significant works, "Entity, Relation, and Event Extraction with Contextualized Span Representations", was published at EMNLP 2019 in Hong Kong.
