I am a first year PhD student at the University of Cambridge Computer Lab, supervised by Prof Simone Teufel within the Natural Language and Information Processing group. I am also a member of Homerton College. Before this, I completed the MPhil in Advanced Computer Science here and did my BSc in Computer Science at the University of Bristol. My master's research, entitled Modelling polysemy in distributional semantic models, looked at how word sense can be explicitly modelled in DSMs and the benefits of doing so.

I am interested in developing interpretable models of computational reasoning, as part of a field sometimes called machine reading comprehension. I do this by storing the 'common sense' knowledge needed to do this reasoning symbolically and examining how it is applied in the course of answering multiple choice questions.

I jointly organise the weekly NLIP seminar series, usually held at noon on Fridays. If you're in Cambridge (or nearby) and would like to give a talk, please drop me an email at the address below.

Outside of the lab I enjoy Taekwondo and kickboxing, and am the president of the kickboxing society.
