Franz Nowak

Hi there!

I am a first-year PhD student in Natural Language Processing at ETH Z├╝rich, working at rycolab with Ryan Cotterell. I did my undergraduate in Computer Science at Cambridge followed by two years working in the software industry, before returing to ETH for a masters degree and PhD.


Other activities

Outside of CS, I like to play Jazz piano. I also enjoy chess and free diving.
