I am professor of Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning at the Department of Computer Science and Technology at the University of Cambridge and a Dinesh Dhamija fellow of Fitzwilliam College. Current projects include dialogue modelling, automated fact checking and imitation learning. I have also worked on semantic parsing, natural language generation and summarization, language modelling, information extraction, active learning, clustering and biomedical text mining. My research team is supported by grants from ERC, EPSRC, ESRC, Facebook, Amazon, Google, Huawei, the Alan Turing Institute and the Isaac Newton Trust.
Prior to this I was a lecturer at the University of Sheffield, working on the intersection of Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning. Previously I was a postdoc at the Machine Reading group at UCL working with Sebastian Riedel, at the NLIP group at the University of Cambridge working with Stephen Clark and at the University of Wisconsin-Madison working with Mark Craven. I did my PhD at the University of Cambridge with Ted Briscoe and Zoubin Ghahramani.
