I'm also a research Associate, Tilburg center for Communication and Cognition (TiCC), Tilburg University, The Netherlands.
My research mostly focusses on the generation of language by machines (a.k.a. Natural Language Generation) and the production of language by humans. My methods include both experimental psycholinguistic methods, and computational methods, including machine learning models such as neural networks. Here are some of the topics I explore:
Apart from these, another long-standing interest is morphology. Here, I'm particularly intrigued by languages such as Maltese, which have hybrid systems of word-formation processes, making them very challenging both from a computational and a psycholinguistic perspective.
I've written a few 'pop science' articles related to stuff I do. The more techy stuff is here.

I gave a recent talk at the IMS, University of Stuttgart, on Architectures and mechanisms for language generation and inference from visual data
