Frank Keller is professor of computational cognitive science in the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh. His background includes an undergraduate degree from Stuttgart University, a PhD from Edinburgh, and postdoctoral and visiting positions at Saarland University and MIT. His research focuses on how people solve complex tasks such as understanding language or processing visual information. His work combines experimental techniques with computational modeling to investigate reading, sentence comprehension, and language generation, both in isolation and in a visual context. Prof. Keller serves on the management committee of the European Network on Vision and Language, is a member of governing board of the European Association for Computational Linguistics, and recently completed an ERC grant in the area of vision and language.
