About Me

I am a research fellow in the ILCC at the University of Edinburgh.

Projects

Jan 2019 - Jan 2021 Gourmet
This is a H2020 project aimed at improving the translation of under-resourced languages, with applications to journalism.

Jan 2019 - Jan 2021 Elitr
In this H2020 project we are researching spoken language translation, multilingual machine translation and automatic minuting.

Apr 2018 - July 2021 Material
An IARPA funded project to do speech recognition, machine translation, information retrieval and summarisation on under-resourced languages.

Feb 2015 - Jan 2018 HimL
Developing semantically accurate machine translation for the medical domain, and applying to morphologically complex languages in central and eastern Europe. I am coordinating this €3M Horizon 2020 project.

Feb 2015 - Jan 2018 Cracker
A coordination action covering European MT research, organisation of shared tasks, workshops and industrial outreach.

Jan 2015 - Dec 2017 QT21
A broad research project aimed at creating improved statistical models for translating European languages, especially those for which MT currently performs poorly.

Jan 2015 - Dec 2017 MMT
Aiming to create the next generation of machine translation infrastructure - scalable, adaptable and open-source.

Feb 2012 - Jan 2015 MosesCore
Supporting open source machine translation through MT marathons, shared tasks and workshops, and continued Moses development, as well as industrial outreach.

Jan 2012 - Dec 2014 Accept
Improving the translation of user-generated content through pre- and post-editing, and advances in the underlying machine translation.

Jan 2011 - Dec 2013 MLTMLV
Automatic ranslation from standard German into dialects, particularly Viennese.

Feb 2009 - Feb 2012 EUROMATRIXPLUS
Continuing the work of Euromatrix, but focussing on bringing translation to the user, with interactive tools, translation of news stories, and improvements to the core system.

Jan 2008 - Feb 2009 EUROMATRIX
This project is in statistical machine translation, working on tools and evaluations for the translation of all EU language pairs.

What I Did Before

In 2005 I completed an MSc in Artificial Intelligence in Edinburgh University, specialising in Natural Language. Prior to that I worked for Orbism, a Dublin-based IT consultancy for several years. And going back even further, I gained a PhD in Mathematics from Aberdeen University, supervised by Graham Hall, in 1994.
