Douwe Kiela

Douwe Kiela I am a research scientist at Facebook AI Research in New York. I received my PhD (and my MPhil) from the University of Cambridge, where I was supervised by Stephen Clark. Before that, I did an undergraduate degree at Utrecht University with a double major in Cognitive Artificial Intelligence and Philosophy; and then a master's degree in Logic at the University of Amsterdam's Institute for Logic, Language & Computation.

My work focuses on machine learning and natural language processing. My research interests lie in developing better models for language understanding and grounded language learning.

How do I pronounce your name?

In Dutch, "ou" is pronounced like in loud and "we" like in were, but you can simply call me Dow if that's easier.
