I am a Machine Learning Researcher at Borealis AI in Toronto working on parsing natural languages into executable code. We have also published a three part tutorial on syntactic parsing with Simon J.D. Prince if you are interested. Previously researcher at Samsung AI Toronto working on semantic parsing and dependency parsing. I did my PhD at the department of Cognitive Science & Artificial Intelligence at Tilburg University under the supervision of Grzegorz Chrupala and Afra Alishahi. Wrote my thesis on learning multi-modal and multilingual sentence representations.
