Liam Cripwell

PhD student @ LORIA

I am a first-year PhD student working in the SyNaLP team of LORIA, under the supervision of Claire Gardent and Joël Legrand. My research is focused on the use of linguistic structure within neural text-to-text generation tasks.

Before starting my PhD I was a machine learning engineer at Notiv where I worked on the implementation and deployment of machine learning products for natural language and speech applications.

I completed my bachelors and honours degrees at the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) in Brisbane, Australia. My honours thesis focused on the generation of clinical search queries and was supervised by Guido Zuccon and Bevan Koopman.
