"Hello, world!" My name is Katerina. I come from a lovely Eastern Europe country - Ukraine. I wanted to become an EMTTI student even before the inception of this programme, no joking 🙂 Five years ago or so I was dreaming about a Master's degree that would be a fusion of Translation Studies and Information Technologies. At my University, I was a student of phenomenal academics, but we were trapped in the old translation traditions and lacked innovations. This year I became EMTTI student and I could not be more proud. My road of becoming a translator and researcher is yet to start, but I already have some experience of oral consecutive translation from/into Spanish, and I would like to develop in this field. In addition, I am curious about machine learning, natural language processing, natural language understanding, and I have a particular interest in sentiment analysis and emotions recognition. I am grateful to the EMTTI Team for this opportunity to learn and to grow and I am sure the Team will guide me throughout my studies and further research.
