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 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.
