Bio
I previously was a staff research scientist at DeepMind, following a (short) period as the CTO of Dark Blue Labs, which I also co-founded.
Prior to my move to industry, I was working at the University of Oxford's Department of Computer Science, and was a Fulford Junior Research Fellow at Somerville College, while also lecturing at Hertford College to students taking Oxford's new computer science and philosophy course.
Research
My research draws on topics and methods from Machine Learning, Computational Linguistics (Natural Language Processing) and Quantum Information Theory (specifically the use of category theoretical frameworks). My main project presently involves developing, implementing and evaluating compositional vector-based models of natural language semantics. I am generally interested in theories of—and applications for—mathematical linguistics, natural language semantics, and empirical semantic knowledge discovery.
