I am a PhD student at the UCL NLP group under the supervision of Pontus Stenetorp and Sebastian Riedel. I have a Masters degree from the UCL Department of Computer Science and a Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Malta. Previously, I worked as a Machine Learning Engineer at Bloomsbury AI as well as other start-ups and corporates across the artificial intelligence, automotive, digital and financial industries.

My current research focuses on natural language processing, with particular interest in question answering and machine reasoning.
