👨💻 About Me
Hello! I'm Sarubi, a PhD student in Computational Linguistics in the Department of Language Science and Technology at Saarland University, Germany. In my PhD I'm mainly exploring personalised/individualised text generation. I'm privileged to supervised by Prof. Alexander Koller and Prof. Vera Demberg. I'm working in the A8: Adapting Text Generation to Individual Users project of the Collaborative Research Center on Information Density and Linguistic Encoding (SFB 1102).
In my Masters work with Dr. Surangika Ranathunga and Prof. Sanath Jayasena, I mainly worked on adapting sequence-to-sequence pre-trained models using continual pre-training and multi-stage fine-tuning for Low-Resource Language Neural Machine Translation (LRL-NMT). Also contributed to developing a state-of-the-art (Neural) Machine Translation system for the government sector of Sri Lanka.
I'm interested in Control Text Generation, Large Languages Models and anything in between Neural Machine Translation and Low-resource Languages.
