The School of Computer Science are very pleased to congratulate Chinmay Choudhary on his successful PhD viva yesterday (Thursday 25th May). Chinmay’s work was supervised by Dr Colm O’Riordan. Well done to you, also, Colm!

Chinmay’s thesis is entitled “Cross-lingual Natural Language Processing with Linguistic Typology Knowledge”. In it, he has proposed a range of techniques to address the important problem of developing natural language processing technologies for low-resource languages, for which relatively small amounts of training data are available.

The external examiner was Dr Edoardo M. Ponti, a lecturer in Natural Language Processing at the University of Edinburgh. The internal examiner was Dr Bharathi Raja Asoka Chakravarthi, a lecturer here in the School of Computer Science, University of Galway. Head of the School of Computer Science, Professor Michael Madden, chaired the viva. We are grateful to Edoardo and Bharathi for their thorough examination of the work. This was a hybrid viva, with the external examiner attending remotely.

Congratulations again, Chinmay!
