I am a Full Professor at the Knowledge Media institute, The Open University, where I lead a group specialising in Social Semantics and Web Science. Previously to joining KMi, I was a senior research fellow at the School of Electronics and Computer Science, University of Southampton. I have published around 120 scientific papers in various leading journals and conferences, and have been involved as a Principle Investigator in several national and international research projects. Currently I am Co-ordinator of two EU projects; DecarboNet, and COMRADES. Recently I served as the programme co-chair of WWW 2014 Web Science Track, ISWC 2013, and WebSci 2013.

Keys: social semantics, social media analysis, computational behaviour analysis, semantic sentiment analysis, offline-online social networks.
