Cristina Mota graduated in Informatics and Computer Engineering in 1997 from Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), Lisbon, and received a DEA (Diplome d'Etude Approfondies) degree in 1999, on Fundamental Informatics and Applications, from Université Paris 7 - Denis-Diderot. Since 2005, she is pursuing a PhD degree on Informatics and Computer Engineering at Instituto Superior Técnico in collaboration with New York University.
She started working in Natural Language Processing, on computational lexicons and grammars, in 1997 at LabEL (Laboratório de Engenharia da Linguagem) where she stayed till 2004. Between 2002 and 2003 she also worked for Linguateca. She has been a researcher at the Spoken Language Systems Lab (L2F) of INESC-ID since 2005.
From 1999 to 2003 she was a Teaching Assistant in Applications in Natural Language Processing, and Computational Linguistics II classes, at Faculdade de Letras, Universidade de Lisboa.
Her main research interests in natural language processing are finite-state techniques and unsupervised machine learning methods applied to information extraction, in particular, named entity recognition.
