Doctoral Student

Leaving date: 15th February 2018


My research focuses on applying machine learning (especially deep learning) to develop structured prediction models for natural language processing.  I am particularly interested in syntactic and semantic parsing, generative models and sequence transduction. My DPhil research focuses on generative models for incremental dependency parsing and neural semantic graph parsing (code).
