My recent research has primarily focused on machine learning for natural language processing (NLP), specifically on
natural language understanding (question answering, information extraction, and semantic parsing);
improving generalization across tasks and data distributions;
interpretability and controlability of deep learning models.
I was a program co-chair at ICLR 2021 and CoNLL 2018. I am also an action editor for the journal of machine learning research (JMLR) and Transactions of ACL (TACL), an ELLIS fellow and co-direct their NLP program. At Edinburgh, I co-direct the Centre for Doctoral Training in NLP (apply!) and Edinburgh ELLIS unit.
