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, in addition to multitask and multilingual approaches to Natural Language Processing.
