I am a graduate student at McGill University and Mila Quebec AI Institute, where I learn about computer science and do research under the supervision of Jackie C. K. Cheung on natural language understanding.

Ultimately, I would like to teach computers how to use language the same way we do – but that’s a long way off. In the meantime, I work on language tasks such as temporal expression recognition, lexical semantic change detection and coreference resolution.
