I’m a PhD student in Natural Language Processing (NLP) at the University of Edinburgh, working on improving the generalization ability of neural networks by applying constraints similar to those we think gave rise to human language.

Before starting the PhD I received an MA in linguistics (also from Edinburgh). Here I’m based in the School of Informatics and a member of both the Institute for Language Cognition and Computation, and the Centre for Language Evolution. I’m happily supervised by Kenny Smith and Ivan Titov.

i’m at ICLR presenting our work ‘Compositionality with Variation Reliably Emerges in Neural Networks’ – come say hi
