Jan Odijk is professor of language and speech technology at the University of Utrecht. The focus of the research is on making grammars useable for language and speech technology by developing approximations to them in a systematic manner.

Jan Odijk worked at the University of Utrecht, from 1982-1988 where he carried out research into theoretical syntax and research in computational linguistics (esp. machine translation). In 1988 he joined Philips Research Laboratories, Eindhoven, where he carried out research into grammars and lexicons for machine translation, and where he worked since 1993 (at IPO) on the development of natural language and speech interfaces, esp. language and speech generation.

In 1997 he joined Lernout & Hauspie Speech Products to become the senior director of the linguistic resources division. Since December 1997 he occupies the same position at ScanSoft Belgium.
