I am a first year PhD student in Computer Science at King's College, University of Cambridge. I am part of the Natural Language and Information Processing Group (NLIP) in the Cambridge Computer Laboratory supervised by Prof Ted Briscoe and jointly funded by the Cambridge International Trust and King's Stanley Scholarship. Prior to my PhD, I completed the MPhil in Advanced Computer Science at the Cambridge Computer Laboratory. I completed my bachelors from the University of Birmingham in Computer Systems Engineering where my final year project focused on using Twitter and machine learning techniques to forcecast oil prices.
My research interests lie in the areas of natural language processing, computer vision, and deep learning.
I am particularly interested in multimodal semantics and capturing spatial relationships of objects
by grounding embeddings visual features with linguistic knowledge. My current PhD work involves improving performance on spatial
questions in the Visual Question Answering (VQA) task. I aim to do this by better capturing
prepositional phrases in multimodal embeddings.
