About Me

Hello! I am a PhD student in the Machine Intelligence Lab in the Engineering Department, the University of Cambridge.

I am working under the supervision of Prof. Mark Gales, and my PhD is fully funded by Cambridge Trust (Cambridge International & St John's College Scholarship).

Before starting my PhD, I was an undergraduate student in Engineering at the University of Cambridge (2015-19). I am a member of St John's College (matriculated in 2015).
