I am Elena (Lena) Voita, a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Amsterdam. Often I visit the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh, and I am part of the EdinburghNLP group. I’m very happy to be supervised by Ivan Titov and Rico Sennrich.

I am also a research scientist at Yandex Research working on Natural Language Processing. My research focuses on Neural Machine Translation, and I work closely with the Yandex Translate team.

I teach NLP at the Yandex School of Data Analysis.
