I am a lecturer at the School of Computer Science and Informatics. Prior to joining Cardiff, I was a Natural Language Processing (NLP) scientist at Savana Médica (a Madrid-based company focused on delivering data-driven healthcare solutions), and before that I was a PhD student at Pompeu Fabra University (Barcelona). My research, in the area of Artificial Intelligence and NLP, is centered on meaning representation, computational semantics, multilingual NLP and computational lexicography. I am laCaixa Fellow, and Fulbright and Erasmus Mundus alumni.
I am currently PI of the Don't Patronize! project, supported by a Kaggle Open Research grant. I am also CO-I in the £90,000 Welsh Government funded 'Learning English-Welsh bilingual embeddings and applications in text categorisation' project (2020-2021), an interdisciplinary project with Dr. Dawn Knight (PI), Irena Spasic and Padraig Corcoran from the School of Computer Science and Informatics and Geraint Palmer, from the School of Mathematics.
