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.

I am interested in developing methods for automatic summarisation of text, specifically abstractive methods. In particular, I am interested in models that can be probed to see how and why information is chosen from the source text for inclusion in the summary. These models are based on ideas about how humans process sentences; how information is read, stored, and transformed. 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.

Outside of the lab I enjoy Taekwondo and kickboxing, and train with the clubs here.
