I am a 2nd-year CS PhD student at the Department of Computer Science and Technology at the University of Cambridge and a member of Trinity Hall. My main research interests are Natural Language Processing, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence. I am currently working with Prof Andreas Vlachos in the Natural Language and Information Processing Research Group and my research is funded by grants from the ERC project AVERiTeC.

Prior to this I graduated from the University of Edinburgh and spent time doing research at EdinburghNLP and A*STAR.

I go by Moy, but you can call me Zhangdie or 袁张嵽1 too.
