I lead the Big Scientific Data and Text Analytics Group (BSDTAG) doing R&D in the domains of text-mining, digital libraries and open access/science. I am the founder and head of CORE (core.ac.uk), a large full text aggregator of open access papers with millions of monthly active users. CORE makes research papers available for people to freely discover and access and for 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 over 20 European Commission, national and international funded research projects in the areas of text-mining, open science and eLearning.
