I am Alexander Clark; I am currently a Visiting Senior Research Fellow in the Department of Philosophy at King’s College London. Before that I taught in the Computer Science Department at Royal Holloway University of London.

I am interested in understanding first language acquisition; my own research tries to develop solutions to the fundamental mathematical and computational problems involved in learning structured grammars from unstructured data.

I am an action editor for the Transactions of the ACL, and for the Journal of Machine Learning Research both of which are diamond (i.e. free to both authors and readers) open access publications.
