Short biography

I am a computer scientist and computational linguist, currently working as NLP research scientist with the NLP  team of Apple at Cambridge, UK. I hold a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Oxford, and an MSc in Artificial Intelligence from the University of Edinburgh. After my Ph.D. I continued my research on compositionality and natural language semantics as a post-doctoral researcher in the Theory Group of EECS, Queen Mary University of London, and the Department of Theoretical and Applied Linguistics of the University of Cambridge. Before being engaged in scientific research, I was a software engineer and system analyst.

Scientific interests

Natural language semantics • Compositionality • Distributional models of meaning • Lexical ambiguity • Dialogue systems  Mathematics of language • Machine learning/Deep learning for NLP • Knowledge base representation  Category theory • Pregroup and categorial grammars • Diagrammatic reasoning
