Research Interests:

My area of research is computational linguistics and natural language processing. I study the application of machine learning methods and probabilistic models to the analysis of natural language. I am particularly interested in how machine learning can be used to illuminate foundational cognitive issues in linguistic representation and language acquisition.

In addition to my position in EECS at QMUL I am the Director of the Centre for Linguistic Theory and Studies in Probability at the University of Gothenburg. For more information on my research and publications please visit my personal website at
