about me

I'm a postdoctoral researcher at the CoAStaL NLP group at the Department of Computer Science, University of Copenhagen, working with Isabelle Augenstein on computational typology, and multilingual / few-shot learning. Before this I was a PhD student in Computational Semantics at the University of Groningen working within the Parallel Meaning Bank project supervised by Johan Bos, and co-supervised by Barbara Plank. I visited the Department of Linguistics at Stockholm University during most of the final year of my PhD. My interests lie mainly in using deep learning to answer typological research questions. I also work on multitask and multilingual approaches to Natural Language Processing, for which I use various deep learning architectures.
