Note to prospective students

I would like to supervise students who are interested in

  • syntactic/semantic parsing and surface realization

  • meaning representation–mediated natural language processing

  • modeling human language processing, first/second language acquisition and diachronic language change

  • computer-assisted language learning

I won't be a good supervisor for other research themes.

How should I get in touch with you?

Email! Please provide some background about yourself, your interests and your current academic status. If you are at Cambridge, setting up a meeting with me is the best way to see if we are a good match for working together.

I am an MPhil or undergraduate student who needs to find a project supervisor. Can I work with you?

You are more than welcome to send me an email or meet with me to see if I have a project which suits your skills and interests. The projects I currently propose for students are listed here. I do have some other projects in mind.
