This is the personal blog of Stéphan Tulkens.
I am currently a machine learning engineer at Slimmer A.I., where I work in the science team. I specifically focus on analyzing scientific text within the publishing process.
Previously, I was a ph.d student at CLiPS, the Computational Linguistics and Psycholinguistics Research Center at the University of Antwerp in Belgium. My thesis topic was on the psycholinguistics of lexical access and word recognition. I defended my thesis remotely on the 11th of September 2020.
Previously, I also held a researcher position at CLiPS, where I worked on extracting concepts from free text clinical records in the scope of the Accumulate project.
I enjoy most things related to programming. My programming language of choice is Python (3.x). I also like reading and listening to jazz music. My favorite author is Jeff Vandermeer, my favorite musical artist changes frequently.
