Dipl.-Inf. Tobias Denkinger

I am a research and teaching assistant and a PhD student at the Chair of Foundations of Programming, Faculty of Computer Science, Technische Universität Dresden.

My research interests lie in formal language theory and its application to natural language processing. I am particularly interested in the parsing of mildly context-sensitive grammar formalisms.
