Alyona Medelyan holds a Master’s degree from the University of Freiburg and a PhD from the University of Waikato, which both focused on Natural Language Processing. During her PhD Medelyan developed an open-source tool Maui (Multi-purpose automatic topic indexing) that performs as well as professional librarians in identifying document’s main topics. Maui is now used by companies and organizations around the world. Alyona has always been passionate about practical applications of her research, which lead to internships at Google New York and Exorbyte Germany. She joined Pingar two years ago and now leads the research and development of API-based products that include semantic and faceted search, query analysis, text summarization, keyword extraction, entity and entity relations extraction.
