Karolina Stańczak

University of Copenhagen


I am a third-year PhD student at the University of Copenhagen supervised by Professor Isabelle Augenstein. Before joining the CopeNLU group I’ve completed the MSc in Statistics at the Humboldt University of Berlin. Before that, I’ve obtained a Bachelor of Science in Economics also at the Humboldt University of Berlin. I’m a member of Rycolab at ETH Zürich co-supervised by Ryan Cotterell.

My PhD work focuses on gender bias detection in cross-lingual setups and interpretability. My primary research interests are bias and fairness in NLP, interpretability, and statistical methods.

Besides, prior to starting my PhD I have worked as a data science consultant for Deloitte Analytics Institute.

You can find me on: Twitter, GitHub, LinkedIn.
