I am currently working as a Machine Learning Engineer at the machine translation startup Textshuttle in Zürich, Switzerland.

I used to be a computer science graduate student at McGill University and Mila Quebec AI Institute in Montreal. During that time, I did research under the supervision of Jackie C. K. Cheung in collaboration with Microsoft Research on natural language understanding issues such as knowledge representations and common sense reasoning.

Before that, I studied cognitive science at Osnabrück University.
