My research is in the intersection of machine learning and language (natural language processing/computational linguistics), and I have a particular interest in language generation — tasks that require machine learning models to produce language, e.g. summarisation and story generation — and unsupervised learning — learning where supervision signal is not available.

Prior to joining the University of Melbourne, I spent over 3.5 years as an industry scientist at IBM Research, developing solutions for clients in application domains from education to government. Parallel to this, I was active in research and collaborated with universities around the world, and in recognition of my scientific achievements I was awarded a research accomplishment prize by IBM in 2019.


Prospective Students

  • If you’re interested in PhD supervision in research related to language modelling and generation, feel free to reach out to me.
  • Unfortunately I do not take interns, as such do not expect a response to these enquiries.
