Raphael Schumann
I am a 4th year PhD candidate at Statistical Natural Language Processing Group at Heidelberg University under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Riezler. My work focuses on grounding Natural Language Processing in geodata and agentic behavior and is supported by a Google Focused Research Award. Recently, I interned at Amazon AWS where I worked on backward compatible finetuning.
I obtained my bachelor's and master's degree in Computational Linguistics at Heidelberg University and spent time as a visiting graduate student at the NLP Lab at University of Waterloo. During my masters I worked on semantic parsing, active learning and summarization, and interned at IBM, Nuance and Bosch AI.
