I’m an ELLIS PhD student at the Pioneer Centre for Artificial Intelligence working on natural language processing and computer vision. My advisors are Serge Belongie at the University of Copenhagen and Ryan Cotterell at ETH Zürich. I am also affiliated with Icelandic language technology company Miðeind ehf. In the last few years my work has focused on question answering, machine translation, language modeling and diffusion models.

Currently I am working on multimodal transfer learning, compositionality in language models, making language models more factual and how methods from sequence modeling can be paired with 3D modeling. If you would like to discuss these topics, or others, feel free to send me an email.
