I am an Assistant Professor at the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation (ILLC) at the University of Amsterdam. Previously, I was a Leverhulme Early Career Fellow at the University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory and a Research Scientist at the International Computer Science Institute and the Institute for Cognitive and Brain Sciences, University of California, Berkeley. I received my PhD from the University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory and Pembroke College.


Research

My research is in the area of natural language processing (NLP), with a specific focus on computational semantics and machine learning from linguistic and multimodal data. Current interests and projects include:

  • weakly-supervised and unsupervised learning for large-scale semantic interpretation
  • computational modelling of figurative language
  • multi-modal semantics and joint modelling of language and vision
  • multilingual NLP and linguistic typology
  • cognitive processing and semantic representation in the brain
  • computational social science and societal applications of NLP
