I'm a postdoctoral researcher in CopeNLU, one of the NLP groups at the Machine Learning section at the Department of Computer Science, University of Copenhagen, working with Isabelle Augenstein on multilingual low-resource learning and computational typology.
My most recent project is on subjective QA, and is co-funded by Megagon Labs.
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 low-resource learning, for instance by using deep learning techniques to answer typological research questions, in addition to multitask and multilingual approaches to Natural Language Processing.
