Anastasia has completed her Engineering degree (Diploma in Information Technology) at Moscow Aviation Institute (National Research University) and proceeded with her Master’s studies at the University of Konstanz with a focus on Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing. She compiled her master’s thesis on the topic of Automated Identification of Framing by Word Choice and Labeling to Reveal Media Bias in News Articles.


Anastasia’s research interests focus on two projects: identifying media bias and developing an AI assistant for plant operations. The first project is interdisciplinary research that applies cross-document coreference resolution to resolve mentions with high lexical diversity to automatically identify media bias by word choice and labeling. The second project is an industry project focusing on the domain adaptation of language models, information retrieval and information extraction in the low resource setup.

Anastasia’s prime interest lies in the areas of

  • Applied Natural Language Processing
  • Framing analysis and media bias
  • Cross-document coreference resolution
  • Domain adaptation of language models
  • NLP for the low-resource languages, e.g., German
  • Information visualization

If you would like to collaborate in the areas of text data analysis, feel free to contact me via email.
