I am currently a third-year PhD student in Computer Science based at the Alan Turing Institute in London. My research interests include information retrieval and computer-assisted language learning. In my PhD project, I am developing machine learning algorithms for community-based question answering and text summarisation. I am particularly interested in applying these methods in real-world educational applications.
