About me

I am a Research Scientist in the Language and Translation Technologies team at Facebook AI Applied Research. Previously, I completed a PhD at the University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory NLIP group, supervised by Stephen Clark.

My research area is Machine Learning applied to Natural Language Processing. My research interests include semantic representations of language, applications of NLP to minority languages, the ethical and policy issues surrounding artificial intelligence, and quantum computing.

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, sailing, dancing, or cycling around Cambridge.

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