I am a 2nd-year PhD student in Linguistics at McGill University and Mila, and a member of the McGill University Linguistic Department’s Montreal Quantitative and Computational Linguistics Laboratory. I work under the supervision of Professors Morgan Sonderegger and Siva Reddy, and hold a doctoral grant from the Fonds de recherche du Québec. I’m primarily interested in semantics, NLP, and intersections of the two. Questions that currently interest me: what semantic structures do large language models capture? Can deep learning methods help us build a formal distributional semantics? And what systems of meaning representation can we come up with more generally?

Outside of research, I also like to teach, having done so in varying capacities since my time as an undergraduate. And outside of academia entirely, I enjoy reading fiction, going bouldering, listening to a wide variety of music, and watching football/soccer (I support Arsenal, although sometimes I wonder why).

How to pronounce my name: [ˈɡɐwˌrəv], [ˈɡɑˌrəv], or anything else vaguely similar.
