Hello! My name is Deniz and I am a first year PhD student in computer science advised by Antoine Bosselut at EPFL - IC. I was previously advised by Stefanie Tellex and Ellie Pavlick in the Department of Computer Science at Brown. My research interests lie in the areas of NLU + ML. Outside of research I like playing with sound and training my cat. Feel free to reach out to via email. ~
