Edoardo Maria Ponti

I am a third-year Ph.D. student in Computational Linguistics at the University of Cambridge. My supervisors are Prof. Anna Korhonen and Dr. Thierry Poibeau.

I am a member of the Language Technology Lab (LTL). I am funded through the ERC project LEXICAL, for which I work hand in hand with Dr. Ivan Vulić.

My main academic interest is cross-lingual variation and its cognitive and computational implications. I am a member of St John's College and an alumnus of Collegio Ghislieri. Here is my cv.
