Research Interests



My name is Sebastian T. Vincent. I am currently a PhD student at the University of Sheffield, working on Personalising Document-level Machine Translation for Dialogue under the supervision of Carolina Scarton and Loic Barrault .

Originally from Poland, I came from a Maths and Computer Science background (with the focus on algorithmic problem solving) to study AI & Computer Science at the University of Sheffield in the UK. Having graduated in 2019, I am now part of the first cohort of the Speech and Language Technologies and their Applications CDT in Sheffield. I’m also a tutor in programming and University-level Computer Science.

My primary hobby is my movement practice, which over the past 5 years has taken various forms, ranging from calisthenics and weight lifting to dancing and yoga. I also enjoy reading philosophy books - my favourite modern theorist being Slavoj Žižek - and playing board games.
