I am a post-doctoral research associate at the University of Amsterdam where I work on natural language processing problems with a multi-modal twist.
Some example problems I am interested in are (multi-modal) machine translation and paraphrasing, image description generation, and multi-modal graph representations.
I am generally interested in research at the intersection of natural language processing and computer vision, and in more practical terms in machine learning and representation learning, computational linguistics, image processing, and using graphs in deep neural networks.
I am usually available in Science Park 107 (F2.11), Monday to Friday.
- Gave two lectures at the Summer School in Translation Technologies organised by the Faculty of Arts in Universidade do Porto, in statistical and neural MT!
- Best Long Paper Award at INLG 2017 in a collaboration with Thiago Castro Ferreira, Sander Wubben and Emiel Krahmer with paper Linguistic realisation as machine translation: Comparing different MT models for AMR-to-text generation! (paper).
- I have joined prof. Khalil Sima’an’s group in the University of Amsterdam!
- Paper accepted at ACL 2017 where I propose a doubly-attentive decoder for multi-modal machine translation! (code and paper).
- Paper accepted at EMNLP 2017 where I study different strategies to incorporate global visual features into neural machine translation! (code and paper).
- Paper accepted at RANLP 2017 where I propose a ranking model to learn multilingual and multi-modal sentence embeddings! (code and paper).
- Collaboration with eBay Inc. lead to two papers! One paper accepted at EACL 2017 and another one at the V&L workshop 2017! (here and here).
