Photo of me

I am a Reader at the University of Edinburgh working on fast and high-quality machine translation with colleagues in the machine translation group. 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.
