I am a lecturer at the University of Sheffield, working on the intersection of Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning. Current projects include natural language generation, automated fact-checking and imitation learning. I have also worked on semantic parsing, language modelling, information extraction, active learning, clustering and biomedical text mining.
Previously I was a postdoc at the Machine Reading group at UCL working with Sebastian Riedel and the BBC R&D team. Before that I was a member of the NLIP group at the University of Cambridge working with Stephen Clark and further back I was a postdoc at the University of Wisconsin-Madison working with Mark Craven.
