I am an ICREA Research Professor in the Department of Translation and Language Sciences of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona, Spain), and the 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: quantitative linguistics, data science for linguistics, computational linguistics, natural language processing, semantic theory, computational semantics, lexical semantics, concepts, categories, reference, lexicon.
