Joseph Marvin Imperial

Kumusta! I'm Joseph. I'm a UKRI CDT Doctoral Researcher at the University of Bath's Integrated Ph.D. Program in Accountable, Responsible, and Transparent AI (also called ART-AI)

I do state-of-the-art research in Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Machine Learning (ML). I'm particularly interested in the following research areas:

I'm originally from the Philippines but am currently based in the UK for the rest of my Ph.D. studies. I'm also affiliated as a faculty member with the Department of Computer Science and as an NLP researcher of the Human Language Technology (HLT) Lab at National University, Philippines.
