Yulan He is an Honorary Professor at the University of Warwick and a Professor in Natural Language Processing at King's College London. She has published over 210 papers in the areas of natural language understanding, sentiment analysis and opinion mining, question-answering, topic/event extraction from text, biomedical text mining, and social media analytics. She currently holds a five-year Turing AI Fellowship, funded by the UK Research and Innovation (UKRI). Yulan obtained her PhD degree in spoken language understanding from the University of Cambridge, and her MEng and BASc (First Class Honours) degrees in Computer Engineering from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.
Yulan's research centres on the exploration of statistical models in representing uncertainty and the benefit they bring over earlier work in a wide range of application areas, particularly the integration of machine learning and natural language processing for text understanding. Some of her interested research topics include question-answering, sentiment analysis and opinion mining, topic/event extraction from text, combining language and vision for multimodal analysis, clinical text mining, conversational agents and social media analytics. Her research has been funded by the EPSRC, Innovate UK, Royal Academy of Engineering, EU-H2020, EU-FP7, and British Council.
