I’m currently a Researcher at Facebook AI Research. I am also a Professor at University College London as a proud member of the UCL NLP lab, and an Allen Distinguished Investigator. Before that I was a postdoc and research scientist with Andrew McCallum at UMass Amherst, a researcher at Tokyo University and DBCLS with Tsujii Junichi, and a PhD student with Ewan Klein at the University of Edinburgh.

I work on teaching machines how to read and reason, in the intersection of Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Machine Learning. I am generally interested in deep learning, good old graphical models as well as old-school symbolic AI.

See my scholar pages for a publication list.
