Who Am I?

Hi, I'm David Alfonso Hermelo. I'm a Natural Language Processing Computer Scientist and Analyst who used to be a linguist, a translator and an assistant professor in Foreign Languages. Now I code as much as I write and I couldn't be happier.

:)

I have been part of the RALI lab of the Montreal University since January 2017, working with Pr. Philippe Langlais and alongside the best coworkers one could hope for.
