I am a PhD student at the Institute for Language, Cognition and Computation (School of Informatics) academic unit of the University of Edinburgh. My PhD studies is fully-funded by the UKRI CDT in Natural Language Processing Scholarship. I am grateful to be supervised by Prof. Shay Cohen and Prof. Antonio Vergari.
My broad interests are in the intersection of Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing, and Information Retrieval. Specifically, I am currently interested in unsupervised syntactic parsing, semi-supervised learning, interpretability and robustness of machine learning algorithms, and understanding social inequality and bias in language.
During the summer of 2021, I worked with Red Hen Lab and FrameNet Brazil as a Google Summer of Code student. Previously, I worked at Cookpad and Niki on building NLP capabilities for a recipe-sharing platform and a conversational AI system, respectively. In addition, I actively participated in crowd-sourced machine learning contests for several years, placing in the money on multiple occasions.
