I am a staff research scientist at DeepMind. My research interests are in machine learning and natural language processing.
I received my PhD from Carnegie Mellon University where I was advised by Noah Smith as a member of Noah's ARK.
Prior to CMU, I was a Monbukagakusho (文部科学省) fellow at the University of Tokyo in Tanaka-Ishii's Lab.
