Short biography

I'm a second year PhD student in the Natural Language and Information Processing Group at University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory, working under Dr. Stephen Clark. I am interested in distributional compositional models of semantics. My work is funded by the EPSRC.

I did my undergraduate degree (BSc in Computer Science) at the University of Leicester. Before starting my PhD, I completed the MPhil in Advanced Computer Science at the University of Cambridge.
