Hila Gonen

I am a PhD student at Bar Ilan University in the field of Natural Language Processing and Deep Learning, under the supervision of Dr. Yoav Goldberg.
Prior to that, I obtained my M.Sc in Computer Science from the Hebrew University, under the supervision of Prof. Orna Kupferman.

I am fascinated by languages and interested in relations between different languages and the way multilingual signals can be used for various tasks. Lately, I have been focusing also on research in the area of gender bias in NLP.
