Katrien Beuls received her MSc in Speech and Language Processing from the University of Edinburgh in 2009 and her MA in Linguistics from the University of Leuven in 2008. She defended her PhD in 2013 at the VUB on a new framework for Computer-Assisted Language Learning that is rooted in Computational Construction Grammar and uses fundamental techniques of symbolic AI such as student modelling and the representation of tutoring strategies to provide personalised feedback to the student. At present she is assistant professor in Computer Science lecturing in Natural Language Processing technologies and AI programming paradigms. She is engaged in the H2020 ODYCCEUS project (www.odycceus.eu), the AI4EU platform (https://ai4eu.org/) and prime coordinator of the ATLANTIS (Era-Net) project. Her main research interests lie in the applications of Evolutionary and Hybrid AI in diverse tasks that require advanced perception, reasoning and learning skills.
