People

A group of over 40 faculty will serve as PhD supervisors for this Centre for Doctoral Training. We believe that breakthroughs in NLP require an interdisciplinary approach, so our faculty are drawn from Informatics, Linguistics, Psychology, and Design. CDT faculty have attracted international recognition for excellence, with two ACL Fellows, one ACL lifetime achievement award recipient, two IEEE Fellows, four RSE Fellows, two BCS Fellows, two past Presidents of the ACL, one past chair of the Cognitive Science Society, and eight ERC grant holders (five of them current).
