I joined KMi as an intern in October 2011. During my one year internship period I worked as a developer on the CORE project.

After finishing my internship I returned to KMi in October 2012 as a PhD Research Student. My research project aims at analysing research publication data sets to discover important properties and patterns. For example, to find new methods for predicting impact of publications and/or their authors in the research field.

Main goals of my research will include evaluating how the impact measures based on citations represent the importance of a paper, designing new methods for measuring impact that will address the current challenges in this area and analysing how the new measures and methods can be used in other disciplines such as information retrieval, exploratory search, digital libraries, etc.

My supervisors are Prof. Zdenek Zdrahal and Dr. Petr Knoth from KMi:

I also work on the OU Analyse project, which focuses on using machine learning techniques for improving student retention.
