I am a Senior Lecturer in Sheffield University's Department of Computer Science where I am a member of the Natural Language Processing group.
The aim of my research is the development of systems to extract
knowledge from text and assist users in accessing this
information. My work has been funded by a range of sources including the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), European Union, Defence Science and Technology Lab (DSTL) and Google.
I have previously worked in various commercial and academic organisations including Reuters Ltd. (where I was involved in the production and dissemination of the Reuters Corpus), Stanford University's Center for the Study of Language and Information and Adastal Park (British Telecom's research lab).
