I am an ICREA Research Professor in the Department of Translation and Language Sciences of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona, Spain), and the co-head of the Computational Linguistics and Linguistic Theory (COLT) research group.

I am a linguist who uses quantitative and computational methods to investigate how language works. I am in particular interested in how people convey meaning through language. I work with computational models (distributional semantics, neural networks) that are able to induce very rich and flexible linguistic representations directly from examples of language use. I am funded by an ERC Starting Grant.

Keywords: lexical semantics, concepts, categories, reference, lexicon, semantic theory, computational semantics, quantitative linguistics, data science for linguistics, computational linguistics, natural language processing, linguistics.
