  • Postdoctoral Researcher, Idiap Research Institute
Hello! I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Neuro-Symbolic AI Group at the Idiap Research Institute.
My main research activity lies at the intersection of Explainable AI and Natural Language Inference (NLI), investigating the construction of AI models that can reason in complex domains and generate natural language explanations in support of their decisions.
Specifically, I attempt to inject explicit domain knowledge into hybrid neuro-symbolic architectures to improve the generalization, robustness, and controllability of NLI models, and develop systematic evaluation methodologies to uncover reasoning strategies and limitations of large black-box neural networks.
Main Interests. Natural Language Explanations, Explanatory Reasoning, Neuro-Symbolic Models and Representations, Interpretability and Causal Analysis of NLP Models.
