In short, I develop computational models of human language. In a bit more detail, my scientific interests include modelling natural language processing, understanding, and generation, how human languages interact with our visual perceptions and representations, and how these interact with and are grounded by the external world.

I am a post-doctoral research fellow in the Center for Data Science in New York University where I work with Kyunghyun Cho. I am also part of 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.

Some broad research fields I consider myself a contributor to include machine learning and representation learning, computational linguistics, image processing, and graph neural networks.

You can find me in office 637, 60 5th Avenue, Manhattan.
