PhD Research Student

I joined KMI as a PhD student in April 2011. My research interests are in the areas of sentiment analysis, opinion mining, natural language processing, information extraction, and machine learning.

My current research project focuses on sentiment analysis of microblogs as apart of the EU FP7 integrated project “Robust” which aims to develop a highly scalable platform enabling trustworthy and timely information services in an ecosystem of online business communities. Robust involves academic and industrial partners including IBM and SAP.
