I lead an R&D team working in the domains of text-mining, digital libraries and open access/science. I am the founder, product and team leader for CORE, which is a service that aggregates millions of open access articles from around the world and makes them available for people to search and machines to text-mine.

Previously, I worked as a Senior Data Scientist at Mendeley on information extraction and content recommendation for research. I have a deep interest in the use of AI to improve research workflows. I have co-founded Semantometrics.org which aim to go beyond bibliometrics and altmetrics to produce new research evaluation methods that make use of the publication full-texts in research assessment.

I have been involved as a researcher and as a PI in a number of European Commission, national and international funded research projects in the areas of text-mining, open science and eLearning.

Keys: Natural Language Processing, Text and data mining Open Access, Open Science, Scholarly communication Information Retrieval, Information Extraction, Recommendation systems, Scientometrics

Team: Lucas Anastasiou, Matteo Cancellieri, Bikash Gyawali, Drahomira Herrmannova, Anita Khadka, Samuel Pearce, Nancy Pontika, David Pride
