Domagoj Alagić

Nice to meet you, overcurious internet user! I am Domagoj and I am a research assistant challenging his wits in order to create something interesting and useful in the field of NLP. Even though I am quite passionate about machine learning in general, I still try to find time for my hobbies. I enjoy playing video games competitively, watching anime, drawing, and especially being lousy at playing guitar (hey, at least I am trying!). If you would like to talk about something among these topics, don’t hesitate to contact me. :)
