I am a PhD student in Computational Linguistics under supervision of Prof. Massimo Poesio at the Cognitive Science Group (CogSci) at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL). As a member of the Disagreements and Language Interpretation (DALI) project I focus on underspecification and ambiguity in natural language, investigating the prevalence of these phenomena and the challenges they pose to natural language processing.

Our paper “Word Sense Distance in Human Similarity Judgements and Contextualised Word Embeddings” was accepted at Probability and Meaning 2020. You can find the paper here and a video recording of my talk here.
Together with some friends I founded Correspondents of the World, an online platform where we share personal stories of people from all around the world, telling their experiences with global issues like environmental change, migration, gender, liberation and the coronavirus. The site is still in development, but the team is quickly growing and we already published some great stories. Find out more on correspondentsoftheworld.com.
