I am an associate professor at the University of Copenhagen, Department of Computer Science, where I head the Copenhagen Natural Language Understanding research group as well as the Natural Language Processing section. I also co-head the research team at CheckStep Ltd, a content moderation start-up. My main research interests are fact checking, low-resource learning and explainability.

Before starting a faculty position, I was a postdoctoral research associate in Sebastian Riedel's UCL Machine Reading group, mainly investigating machine reading from scientific articles. Prior to that, I was a Research Associate in the Sheffield NLP group, a PhD Student in the University of Sheffield Computer Science department, a Research Assistant at AIFB, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and a Computational Linguistics undergraduate student at the Department of Computational Linguistics, Heidelberg University.

I currently hold prestigious a DFF Sapere Aude Research Leader fellowship on 'Learning to Explain Attitudes on Social Media'. I am president of the ACL Special Interest Group on Representation Learning (SIGREP), co-founder of Widening NLP (WiNLP), and maintain the BIG Directory of members of underrepresented groups and supporters in Natural Language Processing.
