I am glad to join the Language and Technology Lab to start my PhD journey as a member of Downing College, University of Cambridge. I am supervised by Dr Ivan Vulic and Prof Anna Korhonen.

Before starting my PhD, I was an undergraduate student reading Engineering Science at St Hilda’s College, University of Oxford. I received my second Master degree in MSc Machine Learning, University College London. I graduated top of my class.

My current research interests are efficient NLP. I am always exploring for more modular, parameter-efficient, and transferable approaches in the field of ML.
