Klaus Macherey

Klaus Macherey joined Google in 2006 as a research scientist, where he works in the machine translation group with Franz Josef Och. He has been working on natural language processing since 1996.

Klaus was a Research Assistant at RWTH Aachen University from 1999 to 2005. His main research interests are in statistical machine translation and automatic speech recognition with the focus on natural language understanding and spoken dialogue systems, natural language processing, statistical pattern recognition, and machine learning.

He received a PhD in Computer Science from RWTH Aachen University, Germany, in 2009 and his Diploma Degree in Computer Science from RWTH Aachen University in 1999 with a major in statistical pattern recognition and a minor in physical chemistry and thermodynamics.
