Hi! I’m Gonçalo, a Machine Learning/NLP PhD student in the DeepSPIN Project, an ERC-funded research project coordinated by André Martins and Vlad Niculae.

I did my MSc at The University of Edinburgh, having studied Artificial Intelligence. My Master’s thesis was advised by Frank Keller and was about using human attention as an additional supervision signal to improve the performance of a Visual Question Answering model.

I’m very passionate about Machine Learning and its applications. I am particularly interested in latent variable models, and unsupervised and semi-supervised learning.
