How to pronounce my name: Tee-Bo—it's French!


I am an engineer at Google Research in NYC. I am interested in anything that involves AI and people. Currently, I am working on language. Relevant keywords are Natural Language Generation, NLG evaluation, and language understanding.

Previously, I was a postdoctoral research scientist at Columbia, in New York, in the WuLab group. Before this, I was a PhD student at the University of Amsterdam and CWI (the Netherlands) in the database group, after a year spent as a software engineer at JP Morgan in London (UK).

I am also a music nerd—when I am not at the office, you may find me play with a band, an orchestra or enjoy one of New York's many music venues. I also like to apply ML to music, see examples here.
