My research interests are in deep learning for natural language processing, in particular text simplification and automatic summarization. My current focus is on applications to the scientific literature, with the goal of simplifying the process of literature discovery and reading.

Previously, I did my MSc in Neural Systems and Computation, also at INI. For my MSc thesis, I worked on automatic summarization of scientific articles with recurrent neural networks. Prior to that, I obtained a BEng in Computer Science from the University of York, UK. I also did a 1-year internship in the Pharmaceutical industry, where I worked in software engineering and big data analytics.

In my free time, I enjoy playing the drums, cooking, going to concerts and hiking.

Text Embeddings Optimized for Distance Computations (MSc Thesis) [Student Project]

The goal of this project is to develop new methods for representation learning of documents and sentences, that are trained to approximate the distance between two documents.
