About me

Hi, my name is Jean. I am a PhD candidate at the University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory, NLIP group, working under Stephen Clark.

My research area is computational linguistics and natural language processing. Currently I am working on distributional compositional semantic models. More broadly, my academic interests include machine learning, artificial intelligence, quantum computing and cryptography, functional programming, and category theory.

I am funded by the EPSRC and am a St John’s scholar.

When I am not being a science nerd, I can usually be found hiking somewhere in the Alps, or cycling around Cambridge.

My name is pronounced [ʒɑ̃], as in the character Jean Valjean in Victor Hugo’s Les Misérables.
