Research profile:

Gonzalo received his PhD in Statistical Machine Translation (SMT) from the Department of Signal Theory and Communications of the Universidade de Vigo on March 2010. His PhD thesis describes several strategies to reduce the search space described by hierarchical grammars with a minimum impact on performance, and a new type of hierarchical decoder based on lattices implemented with WFSTs, capable of avoiding pruning-in-search for many translation tasks.

Gonzalo has been Research Associate in the Engineering Department of Cambridge University, UK, for the past three years. This time has been under the FAUST project: Feedback Analysis for User adaptive Statistical Translation (FP7-ICT-2009-4).
