I am a research associate and data scientist at the Knowledge Media Institute (KMi) with over 10 years of experience applying Machine Learning (ML) and Natural Language Processing (NLP) techniques in domains such as misinformation detection, crisis event extraction and question answering.

I am currently investigating the spread of misinformation and fact-checks for the Co-Inform (coinform.eu) and HERoS (heros-project.eu) projects. I develop and maintain the Fact-checking Observatory (fcobservatory.org).

Over the years, my work has involved the development and application of machine learning techniques for the investigation of user behaviour in different settings (e.g. answering behaviour, energy consumption habits and emerging behaviour in emergency crises), the development of visualisation tools and platforms (e.g. energyuse.eu, Sparks Prism) and the creation of formal ontological models (e.g. DoRES, EUse,Veracity, Curio).
