I am a final year PhD candidate in the Natural Language Processing group at the Department of Computer Science, The University of Sheffield supervised by Dr. Mark Stevenson and Dr. Andreas Vlachos. Currently my research focus is on the authorship attribution area, investigating several attribution approaches.

I received my bachelor degree in Computer Science, from Universitas Gadjah Mada, Indonesia. I got my M. Sc from Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS (UTP), Malaysia, in Information Technology (by research). My advisors were Dr. Mohd Fadzil Hassan and Dr. Norshuhani Zamin. During that time, I mainly worked on applying Link Grammar for named entities recognition particulary for accident domain.

Research Interests

My areas of interest include (the list will be growth by the time):

  • Authorship attribution
  • Author Profiling
  • Adversarial Stylometry
  • Authorship verification
  • Deep learning for text analysis
