Mariya Toneva will join MPI-SWS tenure-track faculty
Mariya Toneva will join the tenure-track faculty at our institute starting September 2022. Mariya’s research is at the intersection of machine learning, natural language processing, and neuroscience. Her group bridges language in machines with language in the brain, with a focus on building computational models of language processing in the brain that can also improve natural language processing systems.
Prior to joining MPI-SWS, Mariya is conducting research as a C.V. Starr Fellow at the Princeton Neuroscience Institute. She received her Ph.D.
in a joint program between Machine Learning and Neural Computation from Carnegie Mellon University, and her B.S. in Computer Science and
Cognitive Science from Yale University.
