Ilia Markov, PhD


I am an Assistant Professor at the Computational Linguistics & Text Mining Lab (CLTL), Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. Previously, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Computational Linguistics & Psycholinguistics Research Center (CLiPS), University of Antwerp, Belgium, and at the French Institute for Research in Computer Science and Automation (INRIA), Paris, France. I obtained my PhD (with honors) in Computer Science from IPN, Mexico, MSc in Language Sciences from the University of Algarve, Portugal, and BSc (with honors) in Computer Science from KSTU, Russia.

My research interests include natural language processing, computational linguistics, and text mining; specifically, hate speech detection, opinion mining, and authorship analysis-related tasks such as authorship attribution, author profiling, and native language identification.
