My interests broadly lie in the fields of natural language processing and explainable AI. I’m currently working on developing and evaluating models with advanced reasoning abilities that provide readable explanations of their decision process.

I did my PhD in the Heidelberg University NLP Group where I worked on learning with limited labeled data for discourse-oriented tasks. My advisor was Anette Frank. Prior to receiving my PhD in Janurary 2019, I completed B.Sc. (2013) and M.Sc. (2015) in Mathematics at the University of Zagreb.

I grew up in Omiš, Croatia.
