Hi there. I’m a PhD student at The University of Melbourne under the supervision of Trevor Cohn, Steven Bird and Graham Neubig. My work is on using bilingual data for processing endangered language speech. I will be submitting in the second half of 2017.

When the wind blows, I may look something like this:

As per some requests, the slides for my EMNLP paper can be found here. The paper (found here) won the best short paper award.

My CV can be found here.

My email address is my first name followed by my last name at (all lowercase).
