I currently work in Google Research, Zurich.
Before I was PhD student at the University of Sheffield, Department of Computer Science, working in the Natural Language Processing Research Group, under supervision of Trevor Cohn and Kalina Bontcheva. My PhD thesis is about probabilistic modeling of rumours in social media.
I have worked on a range of NLP and social media applications, including meme popularity modeling and rumour stance classification. I am particularly interested in designing appropriate ML methods. I have worked with kernel methods, Gaussian Processes, point processes, submodular optimization and deep learning.
