Chenxi Whitehouse

I am Chenxi, a postdoc research associate at University of Cambridge working with Prof Andreas Vlachos on automated fact-checking. I pursued my PhD studies on knowledge-grounded NLP at City, University of London. Prior to that, I received my Bachelor’s degree in Information Engineering at Xi’an Jiaotong University, and my Master’s degree in Electrical Engineering at University of Erlangen-Nürnberg and University College London.

My research focuses on Natural Language Understanding and Generation, Multilinguality, with Knowledge and Reasoning. During my PhD, I interned at Google DeepMind in Amsterdam, Amazon Alexa AI in Cambridge, Huawei Noah’s Ark Lab in London, and visited MBZUAI as a research assistant. In my most recent projects I have also explored parameter efficient modelling (LoRA) and diffusion language models.

I am also part of the machine learning engineering team at Replicate, working towards open-source AI solutions.
