I work at the University of Edinburgh on fast and high-quality machine translation with colleagues in the machine translation group. On August 1st, 2020, I will be promoted from Lecturer to Reader (Associate Professor). More broadly, I make fast neural networks and language models; see my papers or CV.

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.
