I am a final year PhD student at the Institute for Language, Cognition and Computation (ILCC), University of Edinburgh. I am supervised by Adam Lopez and Sharon Goldwater.
My research interests include natural language understanding, multilingual NLP application, representation learning, morphology, and low-resource NLP. My PhD focuses on learning morphological representation for multilingual NLP application.
I am also affiliated with the CDT in Data Science programme (2014 cohort).
