I'm Ned. I enjoy tackling interesting and diverse problems, and I'm excited by finding seemingly hidden information within a pile of data and presenting it to people in ways that also makes them excited. My go to tools for getting things done tend to hail from the Python ecosystem and I'm thoroughly enamoured of the language itself.
I'm a PhD candidate in computational linguistics at The University of Melbourne, currently packaging up my research. In my thesis I explored ways of using deep computational grammars of languages in order to enhance descriptive grammars (the ones that people read). My supervisors are Tim Baldwin and Emily Bender.
My other passion is juggling. When I'm not in front of a computer, sleeping or eating, there's a good chance I'm off juggling somewhere, seeking those elusive flow states.
