Hi there, I'm Edison

I'm a researcher at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), where I'm a member of the Knowledge and Information Research Team (KIRT). I'm also a visiting researcher at Matsuo-ken in The University of Tokyo, where I previously obtained my Ph.D. advised by Yutaka Matsuo. My main research interests are Natural Language Processing and Representation Learning.

I mainly work on multi-modal approaches that combine natural language and video, having developed models to extract fine-grained opinions from product review videos, and for temporal moment localization on videos using natural language.

I am also interested in studying document changes, or edits, which lie at the core of version control systems such as GitHub and Wikipedia. I have worked on learning edit representations that can be useful for tasks such as automatic commit message generation in GitHub, and better quality asessment of Wikipedia articles.

My interests also extend to the study of affect in text and video as a more general issue, including some arguably more complex linguistic affective phenomena such as irony and sarcasm.
