I am an assistant professor in Computer Science at the University of Birmingham and a member of the ELLIS Society. My research focuses on Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Artificial Intelligence (AI).

I am interested in data-centric NLP and topics such as dynamic evaluation frameworks for NLP, active learning, unit testing for NLP and AI, adversarial attacks, data augmentation and data generation.

My current projects span across problems such as natural language understanding, theory of mind and AI, automatic fact checking, and algorithmic fairness.

Before joining UoB in February 2023, I was a postdoc at The University of Texas at Austin. I received my PhD from the University of Barcelona where I worked on natural language understanding.
