Photo of me

I am a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) at the University of Edinburgh working on fast and high-quality machine translation. The machine translation group won first place in seven of twelve language pairs in the 2016 Conference on Machine Translation. More broadly, I make fast neural networks and language models; see my papers or CV.

My consulting company Efficient Translation Limited makes neural machine translation systems faster and smaller.

According to the New York Times, I am a native speaker of C++ "on semipermanent loan from the Internet" and my t-shirt collection is "threadbare."

Students interested in studying with me should apply to our PhD or the Centre for Doctoral Training in Natural Language Processing. Natural language processing or systems background is a plus.
