Student Supervision

  • I am co-supervising Nentawe Gurumdimma together with Arshad Jhumka on 'Failure Prediction in Cluster systems'
  • I am supervising Bo Wang together with Rob Procter on the topic of "Macro-Micro Approach for Mining Social Media Public Sociopolitical Opinion"

I am one of the academics linked to the new CDT in Urban Science at the Department of Computer Science at Warwick.

Get in touch with me if you are interested in doing a PhD related to text mining or applications of natural language processing. I am particularly interested in: biological text mining, discourse analysis, information extraction and summarisation in the context of scientific articles, improving and evaluating the research lifecycle, ontology learning from text, automatic summarisation from social media, emotion or sentiment analysis from text, text mining for monitoring and improving health matters and other areas of urban informatics.
