I am a Research Scientist at Priberam Labs in Lisbon, Portugal. I work on natural language processing and machine learning. I am also affiliated with the Instituto de Telecomunicações, at Instituto Superior Técnico.

Until recently, I was a PhD student in the joint CMU-Portugal program in Language Technologies, at Carnegie Mellon University and Instituto Superior Técnico. My advisors were Mário Figueiredo, Noah Smith, Pedro Aguiar and Eric Xing.

News

  • We had a paper accepted at EACL 2014 and another at LREC 2014.

  • I received the Portuguese IBM Scientific Prize for my work in structured prediction and "Turbo Parsing."

  • I am co-organizing LxMLS 2013 (Lisbon Machine Learning School). See here for details!

  • I successfully defended my thesis in May 11, 2012, at CMU!

  • I am presenting a tutorial on "Structured Sparsity in NLP" at NAACL. The slides are available here.
