I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Natural Language Processing at the Centre of Translation Studies, University of Surrey. I am currently working with Professor Constantin Orasan as part of the UK Innovate project for facilitating legal information acquisition via Natural Language Processing tools. I have also been working on the SentiTrans project for the study and development of Machine Translation engines to improve the cross-lingual transfer of sentiment in online content.
Before embarking on the field of Natural Language Processing I was an Applied Linguistics Lecturer. My background in Applied Linguistics gears my research towards a data-centric approach where I take a scrutiny of data as a starting point for my research. My research interests are mainly focused on the use of data and Natural Language Processing technology for the detection of online misinformation and for improving Machine Translation performance in transferring emotions such as anger, aggression, fear and happiness on online platforms.
