Lieve Macken defended her PhD on May 28th 2010.
Her doctoral dissertation entitled Sub-sentential alignment of translational correspondences was supervised by Walter Daelemans (University of Antwerp) and Joost Buysschaert.
The focus of her research project was the automatic alignment of translational correspondences below sentence level. The system that was developed takes as its input sentence-aligned parallel texts and aligns translational correspondences at the sub-sentential level, which can be words, word groups or chunks.
