I am a PhD student in Computational Linguistics at the University of Cambridge. My supervisor is Prof. Anna Korhonen. Currently, I'm working on developing NLP techniques for annotating and analyzing second language learner data. I am funded by Grace and Thomas CH Chan Cambridge International Scholarship from the Cambridge Trust.
