Hello, I’m a Senior Research Associate in the NLIP Group & ALTA Institute directed by Prof Paula Buttery, based in the Computer Laboratory at the University of Cambridge, U.K. I’m a member of the Cambridge Language Sciences Interdisciplinary Research Centre ad I’m also currently working on a collaboration with the Cambridge Cybercrime Centre, funded by the ESRC and led by Dr Alice Hutchings.

I’ve been on the staff at the University since October 2013, having previously worked in Literature Services at the European Bioinformatics Institute, carried out research for English Profile, and studied for a PhD in what was the Research Centre for English & Applied Linguistics (before its amalgamation into the section of Theoretical & Applied Linguistics) from 2006 to 2010.

You can find out more about my research, teaching and outreach activities by exploring the rest of my site, my ACL Anthology, DBLP or Google Scholar profiles, my GitHub page and Twitter feed.
