I'm currently working on a practical and interesting topic of pharmacovigilance event extraction, which aims to improve public health by discovering and reasoning adverse effect events from text data. The task is broadly relevant to many topics in NLP, such as information extraction, knowledge representation and causal inference etc., and would have a large space to explore. Any ideas will be welcomed for communication.
