Helena Bermúdez Sabel is a postdoc researcher in the FNS-funded project A World of Possibilities (WoPoss) hosted at UniNe.

She holds a PhD in Medieval Studies from the Universidade de Santiago de Compostela. Her doctoral research involved the development of a digital edition model that enables the quantitative study of linguistic variation through the automatic comparison of witnesses. An implementation of the model was illustrated with a Galician-Portuguese secular poetry corpus.

Before UNIL, she worked at the Laboratorio de Innovación en Humanidades Digitales (Madrid, Spain). She was a researcher at an ERC-funded project focused on enabling the interoperability of poetic resources from European traditions via linked open data. She also has a solid experience as an instructor in Digital Humanities courses.

Helena is interested in data modeling and the formalization of annotation schemes. She is proficient in XML technologies and linked data.
