Paramita Mirza is a postdoctoral researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics in Saarbrücken, Germany. She received her PhD degree from the University of Trento, Italy in spring 2016. Her PhD research focused on extracting temporal and causal relations between events from natural language texts, as part of the NewsReader project, with the ultimate goal of the automatic creation of event timelines from large volumes of news texts. Her current research interests include causation and commonsense knowledge harvesting, personal knowledge extraction, emotional aspect of relation extraction and the semantics of numbers in natural language texts. This particular interest in computational linguistics is motivated by her background in computer science and passion about human language.

Further information is available on her homepage.
