I am currently a PhD Computer Science student at the University of Cambridge
(at Lucy Cavendish College
), focusing on Natural Language Processing. I am co-supervised
by Simone Teufel
(University of Cambridge) and Ryan Cotterell
(ETH Zurich). I am currently funded by the
Cambridge ESRC DTP
. I previously completed an MPhil in Advanced Computer Science at Cambridge, achieving a Distinction. During this time I was funded by a 2019/2020 DeepMind Scholarship
I’m interested in interpretability of NLP models, techniques for low-resource NLP, gender bias in NLP and annotation of linguistic data, among other things.
Previously, I graduated with an Integrated Master’s Degree in Mathematics and Physics from the University of Warwick in 2016. My focus was on Algebraic Geometry. Following this, I worked as a Software Engineer for 3 years before returning to
In my spare time, I like studying more languages than any individual should attempt at once, eating katsu curry and travelling (when the world is not in a state of lockdown).
