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. 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, computer vision, reinforcement learning, theoretical linguistics (social interactionist theory) and psychology. I am particularly interested in using multi-agent reinforcement learning to model second language acquisition (SLA). I also have an interest in using language games embedded in an educational environment as a method of training agents.
