I am a researcher and lecturer at the School of Cybernetics at the Australian National University. My research expertise is on Natural Language Processing and Computational Linguistics. During the last 20 years I have participated in national and international research projects and conferences related to language technologies, and delivered language technologies to industry partners. I am passionate about working in multidisciplinary teams and producing technology for social good: text simplification, ehealth, language learning, mental health, hate speech detection, NLP for endangered languages, among others. My work in language processing intersects with machine learning research and its applications. In this space, I am particularly interested in machine learning algorithm design for text processing and in how to encode language to represent meaning. Teaching, supervising and connecting with students is also a big part of my professional life.
