I am one of the Brisq founders. I was a Marie Curie Early Stage Researcher at SIA Tilde, Latvia, under the EU CLARA (Common Language Resources and their Applications) project. I was an Erasmus Mundus Scholarship Awardee in LCT (Language and Communication Technology) program. I spent the program in Bolzano (Italy) and Prague (Czech Republic). I got my Double Master Degree from Free University of Bozen-Bolzano and Charles University in Prague in 2010 and my undergrad degree from University of Indonesia at the faculty of Computer Science in 2007.
