Profile Picture

David Strohmaier

I am a Research Associate in the Natural Language and Information Processing (NLIP) group at the University of Cambridge. I am supported by the Institute for Automated Language Teaching and Assessment (ALTA). More information about me and my research is available on my main website.

My research in the deparment mainly concerns words sense disambiguation and related issues in lexical semantics. I have also published in philosophy, especially in the area of social ontology.

My career path has been highly interdisciplinary. I received a PhD in philosophy from the University of Sheffield in 2018. Afterwards, I completed an MPhil in Advanced Computer Science at the University of Cambridge. My MPhil project covered word sense disambiguation for semantic parsing and was supervised by Prof. Ted Briscoe. During that time, I was a member of Darwin college. I received my undergraduate degrees in Sociology and Philosophy/Sociology from the University of Göttingen. I also received an MA in philosophy from the University of Sheffield.
