Hi there!

I’m a PhD student in Natural Language Processing at Universitat Pompeu Fabra, in Barcelona. This is my personal website, which I’ll be using to keep track of my research & community activity (among other miscellaneous things).

My research interests

  • Contextual word representations.
  • Linguistically-motivated evaluation metrics for syntactic dependency parsing.
  • Deep Learning for natural language processing.
  • Natural language processing for social good.


I am the president of PyBCN, the Barcelona Python Association. Our mission is to promote, educate and advance the local Python community through monthly meetups, practice sessions and specific events like PyDay and PyData.

Also, I’m cofounder and coordinator of PyladiesBCN, a group with a focus on helping more women become active participants and leaders in the Python open-source community. Our mission is to promote, educate and advance a diverse Python community through outreach, education, conferences and events.
