I did my PhD in Automated Question Answering was at the University of Birmingham and my research focused on enabling  the creation of “intelligent” Question Answering System.

I am now a Research Associate at the University of Sheffield, where my Research focuses on investigating applications of strategies for more transparent machine learning models to generate accurate cross-lingual representations for idiomatic language, as well as to contribute to the design and development of resources and evaluation of downstream tasks, like machine translation.
