About me

I am a PhD candidate at the University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory group, supervised by Stephen Clark.

My research area is natural language processing, a subfield of artificial intelligence. I am working on machine learning methods for vector-based compositional semantic models. More broadly, my academic interests include NLP, machine learning, artificial intelligence (including ethical and policy issues), quantum computing, and quantum cryptography.

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.
