I am a second 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. I am also a member of ALTA Institute. 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 at the intersection of natural language processing, machine learning, cognative science, theoretical linguistics and psychology. I am particularly interested in grounding models in cognative and pedagogical literature to encourage learning of both humans and machines. Some of the areas I am interested in are memory (decay) and reward, early-stage learning, scaffolding, semantic representations, and reinforcement learning.
I am currently supervising Part II students in following courses:
