Hello, World!

I am a PhD Candidate (finishing soon!) at the Institute of Logic, Language and Computation, in the Universiteit van Amsterdam. My supervisor is Jelle Zuidema and my promotor and co-promotor are Carel Ten Cate and Remko Scha. I work in a very interesting project where we compare the mechanisms of linguistic acquisition of songbirds and humans. My role is to develop computational models of artificial language learning to test how different factors - perceptual biases, computational constraints, memory limitations, etc. - influence learning.

Before that, I completed a master's degree in Cognitive Science and Language, and even before that, I became a Superior Engineer in Informatics (which is fancy for "Computer Scientist").


Our paper was accepted at EMNLP'17!
I'll be starting a postdoc position at the BCBL soon.
