about me

I'm a postdoctoral researcher at the CoAStaL NLP group at the University of Copenhagen, working with Isabelle Augenstein on multitask learning, 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 multitask and multilingual approaches to Natural Language Processing, for which I use various deep learning architectures.
