I will be hiring 3 PhDs soon, stay tuned for news! From February 2022, I am a tenure-track Assistant Professor of AI in Medicine in the Academic Medical Center, University of Amsterdam (AMC-UvA), where I will work on machine learning (ML) and natural language processing (NLP) methodology for problems in medicine and psychology. In addition to applications in medicine and psychology, my focus is on the complex interaction between language and vision, knowledge graphs, and commonsense knowledge.

I am a visiting post-doctoral research fellow in the Center for Data Science in New York University where I work with Kyunghyun Cho. I am also a post-doctoral research fellow in the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation in the University of Amsterdam, where I am affiliated to the Dialogue Modelling Group led by Raquel Fernández where I collaborate with many outstanding researchers working at the intersection of language & vision. Before that I worked with Khalil Sima’an's group on how to integrate visual information into different natural language processing tasks.

You can find me in office 637, 60 5th Avenue, Manhattan online/by email!
