Research

Hello. I am a second year PhD student at the Computer Lab, in the Natural Language and Information Processing group. My supervisor is Stephen Clark. I am currently thinking about distributional models of inference computational creativity and narrative problems in text generation. Here is my CPGS report with my (out of date) PhD proposal.

I also no longer organise the Cambridge NLIP group seminars. If you'd like to give a talk at our seminar, you can still drop me an email at kc391 AT cam DOT ac DOT uk.

Before that, I did 4 years of maths at Cambridge, including Part III, where I took mainly logic courses. Here is my Part III essay, about models of set theory where every set of reals is Lebesgue measurable. After that, I worked for a year as a software developer, and then started my PhD.
