I am a postdoctoral researcher at Queen Mary University of London. My interests regard probabilistic models for NLP applications and parameter estimation techniques.


The topics I discuss at the howhy theoretical seminar can be found on the blog (updated after each session).

A new workshop on aggregating and analysing crowdsourced annotations for NLP (AnnoNLP) has been accepted at EMNLP 2019. More details here.
