I am a PhD student at the University of Cambridge, co-supervised by Dr Ann Copestake and Dr Bill Byrne. I am based in the Computer Laboratory, but spend some of my time in the Department of Engineering. I am currently working on bringing together deep semantic and statistical data-based approaches to machine translation and natural language generation. Among other things, I am exploring ways to incorporate semantic MRS structure into state-of-the-art approaches to SMT.
I graduated in 2012 from the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia with a BSc Degree in Computer Science. I continued my studies at University of Cambridge, pursuing an MPhil in Advanced Computer Science. I graduated in 2013 with a distinction. I started the PhD at University of Cambridge in October 2013. The PhD usually takes 3-4 years to complete.
