Hi! I’m Vlad [he/him]. I’m an assistant professor in the Informatics Institute (IvI), University of Amsterdam. I research machine learning & natural language processing, focusing on sparsity and structure.

I’m proud to be a co-advisor of PhD candidates Tsvetomila Mihaylova and Gonçalo M. Correia.

I obtained my PhD from Cornell in 2018, advised by Claire Cardie, and then post-docced in the DeepSPIN project at the Instituto de Telecomunicações, Lisbon, Portugal.
