New: I am about to start as Reader at the University of Edinburgh

I am an associate professor (UHD) in the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation (ILLC) at the University of Amsterdam (UvA). Before UvA, I was a junior faculty member at the Saarland University and a postdoc at UIUC. My research interests are in natural language processing (incl. semantics and syntax) and machine learning.

My research is supported by personal grants (ERC Starting grant and NWO VIDI), as well as industrial funding / collaborations (incl. Google, SAP and Yandex).

I am an action editor for the journal of machine learning research (JMLR), Transactions of ACL (TACL), a member of editorial board of JAIR, an advisory board member for European Chapter of ACL. My other professional services include being an area chair for at ACL 2016, EMNLP 2014, EACL 2012, ICLR 2017 and NIPS 2017, a senior PC member for IJCAI 2011 as well as (regularly) a PC member / reviewer at ACL, ICML, NIPS, NAACL, EMNLP, CL journal, JAIR, TACL and others.
