Most of my work is in the field of Natural Language
Processing although it is also been influenced by related
areas such as Information Retrieval.
Areas I have worked on recently include:
- Lexical Semantics (analysis of word meaning), including
word sense disambiguation, lexical similarity and hybrid
- Information Extraction (identificaiton of structured knowledge from text), particularly distant supervision approaches to relation extraction.
- Biomedical Text Processing (supporting access to medical literature), including word sense disambiguation, relation extraction, literature-based discovery/data mining and contradiction identification.
- Document analysis including identification of text
reuse/plagiarism and author identification.
