Edoardo Maria Ponti

I am a first-year Ph.D. student in Computational Linguistics at the University of Cambridge. My supervisors are Dr. Anna Korhonen and Dr. Thierry Poibeau. I am a member of the Language Technology Lab (LTL), working in team on the LEXICAL project. My academic interests include but are not limited to: deep learning for multi-lingual and cross-lingual applications, network analysis, history and typology of (especially Indo-European and Uralic) languages. I am a member of St John's College and an alumnus of Collegio Ghislieri. Here is my cv.
