There should be a picture of me in a tree here


My interests are centered around syntax and parsing. I like to work on syntactic parsing because it allows exploring interesting linguistic phenomena while working on a system that is central to NLP and useful to many applications. I am particularly interested in work on syntax and parsing in a multilingual perspective. I am also interested in the question of how to deal with multiword expressions in parsing. In general, I like work that is at the intersection between linguistics and NLP/Machine Learning.

For my PhD, I am working on parsing with Universal Dependencies, an exciting project that is seeking to harmonise syntactic annotation in dependency treebanks across languages.
