    "I am honoured and delighted to receive the Appen Prize for Excellence in Linguistics. It truly means the world to me to have my efforts and passion rewarded so generously. The prize is particularly meaningful to me as it exemplifies the cross-disciplinary nature of linguistics - specifically language and technology. I am deeply grateful for having been awarded this prize on academic merit, but I am also appreciative of what the award stands for. This prize has consolidated my view that linguistics truly is a field with fundamental relevance to a diverse range of fields. It has not only cemented my confidence to pursue my passion in linguistics, it has also motivated me to explore the synergy between linguistics and technology."
