Current Research

My research interests lie in natural language processing (NLP), computational creativity and music processing/cognition.

I am currently working on the What-If Machine (WHIM) EU FP7 project with Stephen Clark. The research concerns building a computational model of creativity. The aim is to construct a system that automatically produces ideas that may serve as the basis for cultural artefacts. More...

I have recently moved to the Discovery Group at the University of Helsinki. After the conclusion of the WHIM project, I will be working with Hanna Toivonen on the Digital Language Typology project.


I completed my PhD at the University of Edinburgh with Mark Steedman in 2013. The project concerned the application of NLP techniques to music processing. We developed a grammar to model the structure of tonal harmony and used statistical parsing for automatic harmonic analysis. More...

I did a masters in Informatics at Edinburgh and an undergraduate degree in Computer Science at Cambridge University.

In 2008-9, I worked for Mercurytide.
