I am an EPSRC Innovation Fellow the Institute for Language, Cognition and Computation (ILCC), School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh. I have been working in the field of machine translation on many different sub-fields including reordering, evaluation, semantics, and spoken language translation. My recent interests have focussed on neural machine translation where advances using sub-word units and monolingual data have beaten state-of-the-art baselines. More generally I am interested in how computational linguistics and machine learning can be combined to provide compelling NLP applications. Most of my work is done in conjunction with the STATMT group and the CSTR group.
