I am an associate professor at the University of Copenhagen, Department of Computer Science and work in the general areas of Statistical Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning. I head the Copenhagen NLU research group, and am affiliated with the Machine Learning Section. My main research interests are weakly supervised and low-resource learning with applications including information extraction, machine reading and fact checking.

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 am president of the ACL Special Interest Group on Representation Learning (SIGREP), maintain the BIG Directory of members of underrepresented groups and supporters in Natural Language Processing and co-organise the Copenhagen NLP meetup.
