Welcome! I am Joris and I am a PhD Candidate at the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation at the University of Amsterdam. I’m very happy to be supervised by Prof. Raquel Fernández and Prof. Barbara Plank. My PhD is funded by ELLIS and I’m also affiliated with the NLPnorth group in Copenhagen. Previously, I worked at DPG Media as an ML engineer and team lead.
I am broadly interested in understanding when and why modern neural networks trained for language tasks work, and how we should interpret their predictions. Recently, I’ve been interested in uncertainty estimation and calibration as a tool to do that.
Occasionally I write blogposts. You can find them below.
