I am a PhD student in the Computer Laboratory's Natural Language and Information Processing (NLIP) Group, co-supervised by Dr Stephen Clark and Dr Simone Teufel.

Before starting my PhD, I spent a few months in Saarbrücken (Germany), doing a research internship at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics (D5). Previously, I obtained a Bachelor's degree in Information Systems (Wirtschaftsinformatik) from the University of Regensburg (Bavaria, Germany) and a Master's degree in Advanced Computer Science from the Computer Laboratory here at the University of Cambridge.

I am grateful to Microsoft Research for funding my studies under their PhD Scholarship scheme, and to St John's College Cambridge, of which I am a member, who are supporting me with a Benefactors' Scholarship. I am also an alumnus and member of Hughes Hall, where I studied for my MPhil a few years back.
